Comments / picturesAncestor Giovanni ("Polenta") Coda Prin was stuntmen in the cinema, when the cinema was shot in Turin and he later went to Circus. His son Fiorentino (born on May 15, 1916) went to the Girardi Circus, where he married Martina (1912), one of Pietro Gerardi\'s daughters and granddaughter of his fathers collegue Matteo Gerardi. Fiorentino and Martina had three sons; Pietro, known as Piergiovanni (born 4 March 1941), Roberto (b. 26 October 1944), Fiorentino (b. 30 October 1950) who was called "Fiorentino Jr."

1995: the partnership with Rinaldo Orfei ends with the square of Matera. Following the circus acts in Calabria, so going on a long tour in Croatia with the original name "Circus Hanmar".
