Mano d´Oro aka Philippe Todaro is professional magician who moved from Belgium to Finland several years ago. His vast magic repertoire includes shows for all categories, from close-up to big illusions and he often performs together with his Finnish wife Merja Todaro. This lovely and friendly couple has during past 2-3 years beside their performings build the wonderful, stylish and very impressive Magic Exhibition, which is still very unknown even to Finnish magicians. It is very unique and absolutely worth to see in live. www.manodoro.com
