This Family’s a Real Circus

The Zoppé Circus is an Italian family tradition like no other. With a profound dedication to preserving his family’s art form, lead clown Giovanni Zoppé—along with his son, his sisters and their husbands—performs the same acts that his familial predecessors have been perfecting for more than 175 years. Zoppé, who leads the performance as Nino the Clown, is now grooming his son for a life in the ring. For the Zoppés, circus is synonymous with family.
