AMLETO AND GINETTO: From Raffaele

From Raffaele...

Amleto Cagna and his son Ginetto were among the clowns of Circorama Orfei in Italy in the late '60s-early '70s.

I remember perfectly their act: they were some of the very first clowns I saw in my life.

This picture comes from the Circorama Orfei program magazine of 1971, the same year Fellini filmed them there.

Amleto, today 86, works in a café in his hometown, Parma.
