Maximiliano Giaconía (Buenos Aires, July 23, 1993), also known as Max Giaco, is an Argentine illusionist, mentalist and lecturer specialized primarily in mentalism. His work is characterized by his use of psychology, nonverbal communication, and neuroscience in his talks and presentations.

Career

Giaconia began studying illusionism at the age of 12 through books and by attending courses, private lessons and seminars. At 15 he began performing at conferences in front of professional magicians. He then began his professional career performing at private parties, bars, and various other events.[1] In 2011, Giaconia participated in the event "Mágica Buenos Aires" organized by the Ministry of Culture of the City of Buenos Aires as part of a tribute to René Lavand at which various media outlets described him as “the magic revelation of the moment”.[2][3]

Giaconia performed at [email protected]íodelaPlata 2012, an event which was attended by more than 1,500 people and was declared of cultural and educational interest by the government of the City of Buenos Aires.[4][5]That same year he also participated in TEDxUBA giving a presentation about magic and math together with Andrés Rieznik. They would go on to give more than 100 performances of their show “Matemagia” at Tecnópolis that season.k[6]con quien luego realizó una temporada de más de 100 presentaciones en Tecnópolis con su show “Matemagia”. [7]

In 2013, the show “Matemagia” was included in Matbaires, a festival of mathematics and art organized by the Ministry of Culture of Argentina which was attended by more than ten thousand people. [8]

That same year, Giaconia collaborated with the Neuroscience Laboratory at Torcuato Di Tella University and CONICET (National Scientific and Technical Research Council) researchers on an investigation directed by Mariano Sigman about how introspective blindness determines the freedom of choice. Illusionist techniques were used during the experiments in order to influence or modify the participants’ decisions. [9][10][11]

In 2016 Giaconia was invited by the History Channel to participate in the TV series “Suggestions, the Science of Deception” ("Sugestiones, la ciencia del engaño").[12][13]

In March of 2019, Giaconia gave a presentation and performance at TEDxGualeguaychú about the relationship between magic and the mind and how magic can help the neurosciences.[14]

He gave a course at Baikal Institute covering different branches of magic with an emphasis on its psychological foundations.[15]

In order for the viewer to be amazed by magic, first they have to perform an intellectual process. Only after that process is carried out can the emotional impact be felt. Illusionists exploit cognitive biases, manipulate memory and attention, and anticipate behaviors in certain situations. We also induce certain decisions to be made.[16]
