Franco The Magician

My name is Francesco De Cristofaro, or 'Franco' for short. I am an Italian from the South of Italy, and at 13 years old I emigrated to Venezuela. I became fascinated with magic after seeing a live performance by a magician during the interval at a Cinema in Venezuela. The magician asked for the assistance of a young boy and as I was the only young boy in the audience I excitedly ran up to help. He performed a trick using a metal funnel and, directing the spout towards my ear, milk was poured in much to the amusement of the audience, but nothing came out - the milk had vanished! Moments later he made it reappear, but fortunately not all over me! It was so unbelievable and from that moment on I was hooked on magic.
