"The passion I have for the circus, since I was little, pushed me to organize an exhibition with works of art that gave life to a colorful, warm and certainly rich collection of emotions.
This exhibition allowed us to approach the artistic expression of the circus from all angles to show the public the charm of this world and especially its background; the cosmos of cross-dressing, infinite possibilities, the incredible, illusion and drama but always a magical universe.
Are you all ready to laugh out loud or go crazy by immersing yourself in the magic of the circus?
But in which circus?
Parapapapapa pa papa pa pa - Parapapapapa pa papa pa - Papara Papara papa
One, two, three... I closed my eyes and fell asleep! I was dreaming
Life is a circus, a big parade, a mega party!
We are the trapeze artists thrown on a rope to challenge the universe.
What will be our fate? Will we be sucked into limbo and fall into the most sepulchral abyss or will we have the stamina to stay balanced?


We must live! Survive! Learn to fight for the strength to find our own path that will lead us worthily to the other side of the rope.
We jump into the crowd to try each game.
Between jokes and fireworks, we are me against you.


Take my hands! We will manage to surpass everything, even the most horrible hurricanes!
Listen to me! There is still the echo of the children's laughter when the clowns have done their number.


Drum roll, messenger of the beating of our hearts...


Parapapapapa pa papa pa pa - Parapapapapa pa papa pa - Papara Papara papa
Life is a circus! I am a clown, I have a happy mask and I can't cry anymore."


- Michela Margherita SARTI, Curator of the exhibition
