Biography details

Ferdinando "Nandino" Togni , circus director in Italy

Born 1900 in Italy dead 1990 in Italy , son of director Aristide Togni and director Teresa De Bianchi .

The owners of Circus Togni, Aristide Togni and Teresa De Bianchi had three sons; Ercole Togni (1894-1958), Ugo Togni (1897-1981), and Ferdinando Togni (1900-1990). Although the circus survived and performed safely during WWII, the Circo Nazional Togni was devastated by a fire in 1951. Ercole, Ugo, and Ferdinando (Nandino) decided that it was time to split their ever-growing family within three separate circuses.
