The Alexis Gruss Company

THE RISING DESCENDANCE!

The Alexis Gruss company comes from a couple that formed in 1868 with the marriage between Charles Gruss, who was initially a stonemason, and Maria Martinetti, who came from a family of horsemen and women and acrobats who had had their own circus tent since the 1850s. Gradually, the equestrian aspect of the family grew stronger and, in the fourth generation, Alexis Gruss’ name was made famous by founding the Cirque à l’Ancienne in 1974.

Here is a short genealogical memo to understand more before coming to see us.
