Niccolò Fontana was born in Turin on 22 January 1996.
From an early age, he cultivated a passion for acting and magic, training with some well-known theater companies and attending the “Circolo Amici della Magia” in Turin under the guidance of Tiziano Berardi. While continuing with his artistic activity, he obtained a degree in Clinical Psychology.
His curiosity to investigate the human mind and his love for visual arts, particularly cinema, led him to find his own dystonic and eclectic form of expression. Traditional theatrical language unites with a refined form of illusionism that seeks to investigate the unspeakable limbo between what is real and what is impossible, where the actor on stage lives and experiences the magic around him.
In 2018, he made his debut with the act The Room, winning the title of Italian Magic Champion awarded by Masters of Magic and the special jury prize at the San Marino International Magic Festival. The following year he staged the show The Gastoldi Mystery in collaboration with the choir of young singers of Turin and the chamber magic performance The mysteries of Zeno’s suitcase, where illusionism merges with the more traditional style of theater.
He appears as an actor in the recent film productions Walking to Paris by Peter Greenaway and Larvae by Alessandro Rota.
