What happens when a dwarf and a bearded lady meet and get married? They have a family and start a circus! Their eleven children are very special indeed: there’s one who is tiny, another with a huge ear, one has two heads and another is incredibly tall... There’s also Pompeo, who doesn’t exist but everyone pretends that he’s there anyway. This one of a kind family sets up an amazing circus, where diversity gives extra value.
Under the big top at the MAMbo Library, the originals from The circus of the dwarf and the bearded lady - Fausto Gilberti’s most recent book - will show off all of these bizarre characters, together with other circus surprises. The show goes on at CorrainiMAMbo artbookshop, where posters taken from the book Cirque Calder by Ugo Mulas will be displayed among one circus tent and another.
