The Zavatta Troupe

Posted By on March 27, 2017

 Olgi Zavatta on the far right was a good friend of ours. We first met he and his family on the Siebrand Bros Circus in the late 1950’s. His two sons Monte and Geno live just a few miles away from me. We have a visit with each other from time to time and talk about the old days. The Zavatta and Zoppe family’s came over together from Italia, in the mid 1940’s and I believe they joined the Cole show………… Please correct me if I am wrong.
