And the performance drew a capacity crowd. But the circus was there for only one reason -- to bring cheer, and perhaps hope to one man -- Alberto Fedele. Alberto's doctors have told him he hasn't long to live. He'd never seen a circus, and was afraid he'd never see one -- so the Orfei circus -- one of Italy's best -- came to him -- to play in the street beneath his window. Alberto had travelled all over Europe seeking a cure, a new medicine that would help him. But it was obvious to everyone in the street that this performance was good medicine in itself.
Alberto's wish to see a circus had been granted -- and now he knew why the rest of the world laugh along with the clowns.
