Editorial Reviews

Review

"The story of his travels, his acts and those of his talented family will enthrall any reader, and this is a most well-written and structured book" 
- Circus Report

"At 238 pages, with over 170 historical photographs, the book is a delight to read. I highly recommend it" 
- White Tops

"The Grand Gypsy is indeed fascinating and highly enjoyable reading, not only for anyone interested in circus history, but also for any curious or adventurous mind." 
- Circopedia

"The roster of names dropped along the way, along with an expansive collection of photographs from every period covered in the book, should provide a good deal of pleasure"  
- Spectacle Magazine

About the Author

Ottavio Canestrelli was born on June 10, 1896, in a caravan on the back lot of his father's circus in Italy. He was a decorated World War I veteran, impresario, and multi-talented showman who performed throughout the world. 

Ottavio Gesmundo, Ottavio Canestrelli's grandson, hails from more than six generations of Italian circus performers. He is a director, choreographer, and stunt coordinator, who has performed on numerous television specials, Broadway, and over twenty-five productions in Las Vegas. Currently, Ottavio travels the globe performing death-defying crossbow stunts with his wife, Naomi, as MR. & MRS. G. Gesmundo lives in Las Vegas, Nevada.
