TitleMassimiliano Truzzi
SubjectBloomington, Illinois; Circus Performers
DescriptionMassimiliano Truzzi was born December 4, 1903 in Lodz, Poland. A student of Enrico Rastelli, he developed a ""flamboyant and highly technical thirty five minute long act which involved juggling up to nine balls, five clubs, six plates with a head bounce and complex multiple balances. His extravagant costumes and dramatic gestures were most impressive, even in the large expanse of a circus ring."" He joined the Ringling Bros. Barnum & Bailey Circus in 1940 and continued to perform until 1960. Truzzi died in 1974." target="_top">
