Mini Bio (1)

Her parents were Riccardo Orfei - the clown Bigolon - and Violetta Arata - a Circus star, so Miranda Orfei's entire life was lived in a circus. A simple, yet charismatic girl, full of energy, she started working in one herself: horse rider, trapeze artist, and acrobat. Since 1962, she started her own circus, and her popularity remains unabated to the present date (2002), in part helped by her numerous appearances on television shows. After a car accident prevented her from further acrobacies and arena shows with pigeos, horses and elephants, she kept her presence with her faithful public.
