The Pellerani family
As mentioned earlier the Pellerani family has been touring certain parts of Switzerland since 1915. This has made the family famous locally. Today the head of the operation is a man named Michele Pellerani, who was born on thje 13th of April 1958 in Lugano, and litterally is the descendant of a family of funfairs.
