AMERICA: FIRST AND SECOND CHALLENGE OF THE CENTURY!

In 1900 the great conjurer Harry Houdini bet 10.000 dollars that there were no "medium" able to produce any psychic demonstration not reproduceable nor explainable. The original document reported alongside testifies the "challenges to every medium of the world". However, no one till Houdini death, was able to obtain the sum. In more recent times, another American illusionist, James Randi, reproposed the challenge, offering as a prize 1 million dollars. But also in this case no "spiritist, sensitive, seer" was able to win.

In 100 years of history no "paranormal phenomenon" was product, which was not reproduceable with a trick or explainable with the physical laws!
Un century after, Europe reproposes the challenge, for initiative of the Italian illusionist Alfredo Barrago (in the picture below) partner of the "International Brotherhood of Magicians" of New York" and of the "Italian magic club", founder of the "CICAP" Sardinia (www.cicap.org); consultant of "Telefono Antiplagio", voluntary service committee in defence of the victims of quacks and gurus and against the abuses in the telecommunications (www.antiplagio.org); founder of SPIA, first Conjurer Authorized Italians Trade Union (www.alfredobarrago.it).
