A little known fact……Just before World War II broke out two great circus families were desparate to come to this country. The Zoppes and the Zavattas. Both were close knit families and they sacrified all they had to become part of the American Dream and Circus. It took a lot of luck and the one person to helpmake it happen. Aurilla Zavatta was the spokes person and was responsible for handling all the business concerning government paper work needed to bring both families to the U.S.A. Later as the years passed the family separated, both going the their own successful ways. The rest is history and is still being made.
