April 21 – The Founding of Rome (Rome's Birthday). The celebration of Rome's birthday is typically held the weekend that falls closest to April 21. Rome is said to have been founded by the twins Romulus and Remus in 753 BC. Special events, including concerts, a parade, and historical re-enactments are held at the Circus Maximus, the large field where chariot races were once held. Fireworks and gladiatorial displays at the Colosseum are also part of the festivities.

The performance of the Cirque Éloize not only bring to the stage this new way of thinking about the circus, but it represents a step further. In fact, thanks to the use of the language of the street, to the spectacle of philosophy "street", the result is explosive. A show full of energy, acrobatics, break dance, set in the streets of a contemporary metropolis and mixed with the sounds and music of the underground scene.
