From Arnaldo Galli to Dario Fo: working with talents

The Cinquini family’s history in the world of Carnival began with Mario, one of the most appreciated carpenters, back when the floats still had a wooden soul. In 1985, his first son Umberto makes his own solo mask, first classified of that edition. In 1986, he began making masquerades in groups, and since 1991 his brother Stefano has been working with him.   

In 1992-1993 they signed 1st category floats with the award-winning master Arnaldo Galli, then from 1995-1999 they worked with Paolo Lazzari on 1st and 2nd category floats. In 2000 they built a float designed on the concept of peace designed by Nobel Prize winner Dario Fo, and in 2001 the float based on Pinocchio was designed by director Enzo D’Alò. In the 2nd category, they won five times consecutively from 2008 to 2012. In the 1st category they won in 2018 with “Papaveri rossi” and achieved excellent placings in the other editions. Since 2018, Michele Cinquini and Silvia Cirri have been part of the team.   

In addition to Carnival, they have collaborated in the creation of sets and sculptural elements for Rai and Mediaset broadcasts 

They have also worked on advertising campaigns for large companies – such as Volkswagen, Molteni, Piaggio, and Ferrero – and on the design and construction of sets for playgrounds and private parties. They have also participated in other cultural events such as the Jerusalem Trimillenary, Lido Festival, and music tours of Giorgia and Jovanotti. In February 2006, they designed and built the scenic and decorative elements for the closing ceremony of the 20th Winter Olympic Games in Turin 2006.
