Villa Grock Imperia

Adrien Wettach in arte Grock e’ nato in Svizzera a Loveres nel 1880. Il padre orologiaio faceva fatica ad arrivare a fine mese per cui decise di aprire la locanda “Paradisli”, dove la famiglia intera intratteneva gli ospiti con musica e giochi.

Un giorno un piccolo circo giunse nel suo villaggio e Adrien – che aveva 6 anni – ne rimane letteralmente folgorato. ]Passarono gli anni e finalmente Adrien riusci’ a farsi assumere come cassiere in un altro circo.

Il primo ottobre del 2003 la coppia di comici Brick e Brock fu costretta a dividersi perche’ Brock venne chiamato alle armi. Il direttore chiese allora al giovane di scendere in pista e sostituire il clown. Adrien esegui’ alcuni numeri e il successo fu cosi’ eclatante che fu assunto come nuovo clown. Fu cosi’ che Adrien divenne…Brick…Brock…Grock!!!

Ben presto raccolse successi in tutta Europa in quanto era un clown completanmnete nuovo capace di stupire, intenerire, di far sorridere e di far sognare. Parlava 8 lingue, suonava ben 14 strumenti, componeva musica, inventava gags, ed animava sia la pista dei circhi che le platee dei teatri con grande energia e presenza scenica.

Nel 1919, al teatro Olimpia di Parigi, venne incoronato Re dei Clown. Era amico di altri artisti famosi come Picasso,Charlie Chaplin, Stanlio e Olio ed era stimato dai potenti dell’ epoca.

Quando approdo’ ad Imperia acquisto’ un ampio terreno e nel 1927 costrui’ l’attuale villa con splendido giardino, realizzando un circo di pietra.

 

Grock mori’ nel 1959 e la villa si spense, subendo un lungo periodo di chiusura e di abbandono nel corso del quale l’incuria, il degrado e visitatori abusivi ne ridussero la bellezza superficiale a brandelli. Finalmente un accurato restauro, conclusosi nel 2006, ha consentito di ripristinare l’antico fascino.

La villa e’ stata riaperta al pubblico nel 2010 ed e’ anche possibile guardare dei filmati in cui questo grande artista si esibisce.
