This came from Mia Cristiani-Alvis by way of Laura Sedlmayr today. - Today at the Chalk Festival - a nice tribute to our family - all the Zacchinis that contributed to their fame - Bruno, Teo, Mario, Edmundo, Victor, Mario, Emanuel Sr., Emanuel Jr (Lali) Sylvana (ChaCha), Egle, Duina, Germana, Olympia, Madeline - all wonderful performers and I am so proud to be part if their lineage - I hope I didn't forget anyone.
I performed from 1973 to 1995 with a couple years off in between. I did an aerial cradle act for three years, low wire as a clown, trained llamas, ponies, then lions and tigers for 15 years. I am now a firefighter, a member of the Circus Historical Society and an author of several circus and carnival related subjects.
