My name is Luca Lombardi and I was born on 30th June 1995 in Borgomanero, in the Novara outback, “between Milan and Turin”.
I grew up in an artist’s family, my parents are the founders of “LaRibalta Art Group”. At school I started juggling already, then I studied in depth the most varied techniques related to theatrical improvisation. Soon I continued with studying the music and earned the musical diploma. I developed a strong passion for
African percussions: I play the Djembe, the drums, the piano, the guitar… but above all I love to play everything that is not an instrument.
On my way I met Matteo Chippari and we created the duo “El Carro”. Then I started wandering and I used to perform on the street in Novara, until I got mad. So much work and energy wasted and still no Euro in the pocket… But a little show was born a few months earlier in the viette novaresi. “El Wandering Wagon” traveled halfway through Europe and on the way I discovered my new love – street art.
I love creating the circle and “making a hat”. I also love chinotto Lurisia, motorhomes, pulleys, pasta and telephone pranks.
With the diploma in my backpack I went to Schaffhausen where, together with Jean-David L’Hoste-Lehnherr, I participated in the “30th Vorstadt Variété”.
I am co-founder of “3Ciclo Punkers”, a project of the company “Théâtre de l’Extrême”, with which I toured Switzerland in Summer 2020.
Since May 2020 I joined the “Zirkus Fahraway crew” as a clown, actor and musician. The show will be ready in February 2021 and will be on tour until October 2021.
