The economic repercussions of the period we are experiencing have spared almost nobody. After the most dramatic moment of the health emergency linked to covid-19, now we have to deal with a disastrous economic situation that has pushed many people to the ground. Most sectors have been mentioned, but there is one, related to the show, which has been little or nothing considered, and which is perhaps the most complicated to deal with given its very nature, we are talking about the circus.
The photos show the Harryson Circus stuck in Crevalcore, in the province of Bologna, for more than two months because of the coronavirus. Two brothers with their families run the show and a third gives them a hand since he got stuck here trying to reach their sons, also artists, who are located in Romania. Luisito tells us how, they who were born in the circus, they have never been stopped for more than two weeks in the same place and how difficult it is to go on without being able to work, there are expenses to pay, animals to feed and take care of, but luckily the town has adopted them and the parish priest and Caritas are giving him a big hand.
Unfortunately, there is no idea of when they will be able to start again and wear the stage clothes that are a fundamental part of their own life, but meanwhile, the hard training continues every day, especially for the youngest, and the smile does not abandon them either at the moment, in the end, as always, the show must go on!
