Italy’s first hospital clowns service.
20 years with children and their families, working alongside hospital staff.
Soccorso Clown Onlus is the founder and pioneer body of a new profession (the hospital clown) that brings together and unites the professions of circus and theatre operators. Out of this has arisen a new form of entertainment designed to confront and transform the reality of being a patient in hospital.
The professionals from Soccorso Clown are not volunteers: they are versatile and multi-skilled players drawn from a broad spectrum of the entertainment world, specifically trained to acquire techniques by which they can play down, if necessary, the small and great dramas of a young patients’ life.
