With a vast repertoire of different, although outdated, techniques, he is still the most famous juggler of all times. His mastery in mixing different styles makes him a forerunner of the current Contemporary Circus movement, based on the combination of different communication methods. All this led to a new vision of Circus Arts, less and less tied to the big top and open to new explorations.
Every year, the festival hosts an internationally renowned artist performing a show on the stage of Social Theatre.
There are also various workshops on circus arts and modern juggling suitable for people of all ages Furthermore a Grand Gala hosts international artists as well as a contest for young jugglers in search of Rastelli’s successors. Finally, the Festival also hosts a match of the international Fight Night Combat tournament, where each juggler challenges the others to a “one-on-one fight”, and a big party with open stage for anyone who wants to perform.
