Tout est Possible, Victor Lustig, de Maite Caramés

Barcelona

Serendipity, fortuitous events, an unexpected and celebrated finding, that’s the starting point of this story. Victor Lustig, Austro-Hungarian and professional swindler came to Paris in 1925 from the United States.

The idea for a new scam came to him by chance: while reading the newspaper he found some news lamenting the decay of the Eiffel Tower, and the huge costs of the Town Hall. The article ended with a mocking piece of news: “Should we sell the Eiffel Tower?”

Lustig immediately started one of the biggest scams in history: selling the Iron Lady.
