Roberto Benigni dropped out of school to work as a magician's apprentice in a little traveling circus called Drolin.
Every evening he would go on as the magician's assistant and pretend to be hypnotised. There was also a fire trick, with a strange powder and cream, in which his hand would be set on fire and and it wouldn't hurt. But once, it didn't work and his hand really caught on fire. He still has a scar there.
