൯ ENNIO MARCHETTO

Ennio Marchetto (born 20 February 1960 in Venice) is an Italian comedic live entertainer whose performances feature quick-change artistry, impersonations and his trademark bi-dimensional paper costumes. In his one hour show he goes through 50 costume changes, often in front of the audience without hiding behind drapes or screens and without any assistance by stage hands.



His costumes are created from cardboard and paper, often folding from one character into another character. In 18 years, Ennio has performed in over 70 countries for more than a million people. His show has received numerous awards and international critical acclaim. He has around 350 characters in his repertoire. His characters are often celebrities, but also include other cultural icons and works of art. His first international engagement was during the 1989 Edinburgh Fringe Festival, where his show became a cult hit. His show has travelled all over the world ever since and has been part of major television productions worldwide.
