Yes, It's OZ and the WIZARD Is In the House!
May 2019 • Couples
As charming as Orvieto is, there's a gentleman on Via dei Magoni who adds a little sparkle and magic to the town. As others have said, stop in for sensory overload & some whimsey and view some of the unusual gift items on display. Some will be wound up and demonstrated by the "Wizard" himself (aka Giusepppe Rosella)!

Magical Mystery Tour

We had looked into the windows several times of Il Mago di Oz before visiting on a recent Saturday morning shortly after this incredible store had opened. The owner and operator of the store is an enchanting, charming guide and his many eccentric and fascinating music boxes delighted us for nearly an hour as he instructed us to work each one he demonstrated for us. We were lucky to be there without anyone else in the shop as it was one of the most incredible stores we've ever seen. A must-see while in Orvieto!

The Wiz

He was great and my kids were fascinated. We didn't know what to expect when we walked into his workshop, but we loved it.

Go early in the morning before the crowds
May 2018 • Couples
We were in Orvieto for just an overnight, an hour from Rome by train, and navigating the winding streets off of the Via del Duomo when I glanced down a tiny street and saw the sign for this shop. We were in a hurry to get to a mass, so we bypassed it, and went back at 930 AM on sunday morning, just in time to enter the opening shop. The ownder, now 81, was very cordial-and the place is crammed with mostly new gift items with a nostalgic theme. The real gems of the shop are the charming, proud owner, the pics on the wall of his customers many, (including Sara Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick, and Rick Steves, and the VAST selection of Italian ephemera including naughty 19th century photos, and colorful Italian news stand mags from the 1940s and 50s. GREAT place, narrow aisles. Evocative. We got to hang out with a real wizard!

We were browsing the shops and happened upon this Magic store--and could not tear ourselves away. They had an amazing array of different items and gifts/.

A Bit Much
Sep 2017 • Couples
Well, there is nothing of Wizard of Oz in this store except maybe the model hot air balloons up by the ceiling. It's a very visually stimulating place, packed full of stuff and very narrow aisles (basically a square). Just seemed like a lot of junk to me.

What cool shop to explore and browse and by all means engaein conversation with the proprietor, the Wizard. An amazing collection of kitch and shtick with specialties in Betty Boop and of course the Wizard of Oz among many other things. As you wander take your time and look deep into the layers of collectables and other stuff. I had a blast, It certainly was worth my time. Enjoy.

An amazing place with a lovely guy!
I wanted to buy the whole store and he was amazingly sweet and hospitable. If you're lucky, he'll show you some magic :)

Neat little shop
Sep 2016 • Friends
Cute, nostalgic shop to visit. Owner is very interesting as well. It's very crowded with lots of items in the shop so be careful moving around inside. No pictures are allowed inside and you can't touch either. Expensive.

This place is great!

It's the most unique place in the entire town! The street is charming and the store is classic. I ended up buying a table lamp and it was easy getting it rewired to US standards. Plus it's a very unique souvenir from your visit to Orvieto.
