From Napoleon to Bouglione via the
great directors Franconi and Gaston Desprez, we invite the reader to
follow in the footsteps of the great men of the circus to better
understand the influence of this Parisian institution. It is in this
unique building, in the heart of Paris, that Bouglione perpetuates
the tradition today. To discover the archives of the Winter Circus
is to dive into the past of this mythical place, to highlight the
name of famous families from one century to another. To write the
history of the Winter Circus is to speak of the history of Paris,
the arts and the genius of the people behind this institution. The
Winter Circus continues to operate, as a bridge between old and new,
proud of its millions of visitors who have made it such a famous
symbol, weaving its fame over the years and around the world.
