Harry Edwin Stefan Belli (1914-1975) was one of 6 or 7 children all working in the circus of their parents in Germany, circus Belli.

Harry Belli married Elly Strassburger in 1957. In 1961, '62 and '63 the Circus Strassburger did not go on tour, but in those years Harry Belli went on tour in Holland as Circus Belli. The tiger on the horse-act was very spectacular, there where two little dogs in it as well. Harry was with this act also in Argentina, and when his circus stopped he went with this act to several other countries. Harry Belli died in the end of the seventies or around 1980.
