Muzii, a Roman, is convinced that it is "just a question of training", this he said in an interview with his neighborhood blog, VignaClara Blog, in October, and this repeats today: "It is not a natural gift, we only need to know the memory techniques, such as the ancient method of the "memory palace", and training with constancy every day ".
The disciplines of the World Championships are ten: images, playing cards, words, names and faces, numbers under dictation, and more are memorized, with different times and methods. For example, among the world records beaten by Andrea Muzii on this occasion, there is the maximum number of playing cards stored in half an hour: 1829 cards. They are more than 35 decks mixed and rebuilt without errors.
Today's victory follows that of the European Championship in Sweden two weeks ago and 17 Italian records, 8 European records and 6 in the various disciplines, including those won at the French Open 2019 in Paris, Andrea was also the winner of the MSO Memory Champions 2019 from London. At the Zhuhai Championships he improved 2 world records.His greatest regret, he had said, was that he had only recently discovered the passion for numbers and memory. Or he would have used it at school, both in middle school and at the Liceo Scientifico 'M. Azzzze ai Parioli. He is now enrolled in the Faculty of Medicine. The next challenge awaits him in Dubai in 2020, at the Memoriadi, the Olympic champions of memory.

Andrea Muzii was a champion of the Rubik's cube, which he also solved in a few seconds from being blindfolded. From that passion he moved on to trying to memorize and he began to study, "I train every day, at least half an hour but I can also practice for three hours, the important thing is to do it every day, it counts a lot on performance". The important thing, he explains, are the techniques.
"There are mnemonic principles but the techniques are always the same, it is a matter of converting information into images," he explained in October, adding that he also wanted to help others train or lose a little less memory. "Videos are also very useful, with Alessandro De Concini, a dear friend of mine, we are making a video, an online course that explains exactly how these techniques are acquired. We would like these great results to be useful to others, for example to those who have little memory or to whom, for various reasons, have lost a little and could buy them back. Here, it would be nice to be able to help these people ".
