Ercole Togni was son to Aristide Togni (1853-1924), who founded Circus Togni
Ercole's children were Darix, Wioris, Wanet, Leda, and Doly. Their new circus took the name of Darix Togni, since Darix was the star of the family with his very popular lion and tiger acts. The circus folded its tent after Darix's death, in 1976.
