Tony Slydini's Grave

 


Tony Slydini hardly needs an introduction. He was one of the greatest close-up/sleight of hand men of the 20th Century. What made him stand out among all the others is that he invented all his own moves. And according to his only officially authorized protege, Bill Wisch, Tony truly loved magic. His real name was Quintino Marucci born Sept 1st 1900 in Italy, died January 15th, 1991. 

The Magic Detective Podcast Ep 45 covers Slydini. http://magicdetectivepodcast.com/e/ep-45-the-enigmatic-slydini/

The location of the grave was known to precious few. In fact, I've been trying to find out where it was for over a year. But thankfully, Bill Wisch has decided to reveal the location to all. We are forever grateful for revealing the location of Slydini's grave. Bill filmed a short video that you might enjoy...see below...
