Trapezi was born from the entire founding team’s desire to revitalize the circus sector and offer a platform where it can be visible within the network of the live arts.
He has since taken part in the revolution that the circus sector has been able to enjoy.
He has helped in the visibility of the circus at European and global level and has been a reference as a model fair for its way of dealing with companies and programming.
