"Roberto Giobbi’s brilliant lectures are clear and pedagogical, based on immense knowledge in magic. Roberto Giobbi is a true connoisseur in many fields. He doesn’t serve you a quick meal. Rather his menu in magic begins with a tasteful starter, followed by a powerful main course and an exciting dessert. When he talks you listen and when he handles the cards he really catches your attention and creates the essence of attractive magic. Roberto Giobbi’s card work can be characterized in a few words: Elegant simplicity with economizing of moves, delicate misdirection guided by a powerful logic story." - Lennart Green
What will he teach?
The lecture will deal with effects, techniques and theories with playing cards for the performer who works at the table for a smaller group. This is the situation all of us, whether professionals or amateurs, find ourselves in frequently: with friends or business associates in a bar, after dinner at home, at a party as an invited guest. Clear, straightforward, strong magic that is entertaining and memorable. Briefly, this is magic for everybody, for everyday situation.
Based on the world’s foremost course in card magic, Card College, the author himself will take you on a fascinating tour through the first 4 volumes. He will demonstrate and comment on sleights and subtleties, which are neither in the books, nor on the 4-volume DVD set – this material has never been filmed before. Every principle, technique and theory is exemplified in detail in the context of commercial performance pieces, most of which are in Roberto Giobbi’s professional repertoire and which have earned him a comfortable living by performing for international audiences of all types around the globe.
Among many other things you will learn:
That’s Not All!
Plus, you’ll learn dozens of original sleights and subtleties to add to your repertoire and enhance your magic, such as:
Although the instrument used will be an ordinary deck of playing cards, the main focus is on artistic magic. Roberto Giobbi’s holistic approach to magic, well-known to readers of his best-selling books, considers the technical, psychological and dramatic aspects on which all excellent magic is founded. Many of the tricks and techniques performed and explained, albeit conceived for the close-up performer, can also be done stand-up in parlor or small stage situations.

Roberto Giobbi shares the real work on many sleights and teaches some great tricks. The little touches make a big difference. I also enjoyed the theory and thinking behind the effects.2 of 2 magicians found this helpful.

Giobbi is the thinking person's lecturer. This is a wonderful example of how the material in Card College can be used and made even more effective. Giobbi spends time talking about and illustrating concepts that can be used in many other pieces.2 of 2 magicians found this helpful.
I have seen a lot of Penguin (and live) lectures (I subscribe) and this is hands down the best one ever. Keep in mind that there have been many great lectures from Penguin over the past few months. This one is worth watching over and over to see how Roberto thinks, solves problems, and makes good moves even better.
If this were the only lecture that I received for my 50 dollar monthly fee, I would feel as if I had received a bargain. Get this now and your card magic will never be the same.
The Best Ever Card Magic Lectures Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 15th, 2015
The Card College Series, was my first portal into the world of magic almost 20 years ago. It has been my go-back to reference for almost everything.In fact, it could be argued that Roberto was my first magic teacher (via the book).
Quite simply, I have recently purchased both Roberto's Penguin Live lectures and have to say that they are the very best lectures on card magic I have ever come across.
I have seen lectures by Juan Tamariz, Salvano, Gary Kurtz and yet these lectures by Roberto absolutely top all of them. 11/10. Get them now.
Highly recommended for all Cardmen Report this review

I liked a lot this lecture. R. Giobbi is a huge teacher, his explanations are perfectly clear and he's, of course, very skilled.
A lot of cool references, too, and a lot to read in the next few months.
At the end of the lecture, during the interview, he says that we can make a specific request by mail, but I couldn't find his website or his mail address. Any help, someone ?
