"Ciao... I'm Vittorio. For over 40 years I have worked at the Piccolo Bar cafe. I've had both the pleasure, and pain, of meeting many a creative personality. Some are very famous for their work in the arts. Some have been fellow actors from my Belvoire Theatre days and a few are forgotten achievers who have passed-on to the other side. There is also the occasional 'nut-case' who is known for staying longer than they should have.

"Kings Cross has changed dramatically over the years. Sometimes for better, sometimes for worse. The Piccolo is still here and as time goes by, new faces will appear bringing with them the eccentricity and expression of all the arts."




BURLESCO was formed by Michael Matou, in Sydney, in the early eighties as a theatre/cabaret show.
