The Anastasini Brothers, Extreme Gymnasts
Fabio and Giuliano are two-of-a-kind. The 9th generation circus performers and extreme gymnasts have been performing in front of live audiences since they were teenagers.
They’re descendants of the Anastasini family, an Italian dynasty of traveling entertainers which included hand-balancers, jugglers, and acrobats. The circus line began in the 19th century with Circo Anastasini in Italy.
Fabio and Giuliano landed in the Guinness Book of World Records for performing the “Most Risley Flips in 30 Seconds” - an amazing 32 full rotations.
For those unfamiliar with the circus trick, the Risley Flip is a ground acrobatics move where one person lies on a surface as the base, supporting the flyer with their feet. Once the flyer is in position, the base acrobat flips the flyer 360 degrees with a foot maneuver. It requires intense core strength, trust and coordination.
The Anastasini Brothers are now happy to call Las Vegas home and are proud cast members of V – The Ultimate Variety Show.
