The name Bellachini was first used by the magician Samuel Berlach


Berlach was the most famous and popular magician

of the 19th century.

The popularity was reflected in the fact that many magicians in later years also called themselves Bellachini in order to bask in the fame of the "real"

Bellachini's fame.

Thus the name Bellachini stands for a long tradition of magic and is the godfather of the Hamburg Magic Museum.


On the occasion of the opening, volume 10 is published in the A-B-C series of the Taschenspieler-Kunst with a detailed biography of the Bellachini dynasties, including a contribution by Prof. Dr. Natascha Würzbach, great-granddaughter of Samuel Berlach.
