Topo Gigio is an all-Italian puppet personality, invented by Maria Perego with her creative and artistic brilliance. He made his debut in the early 1960s in the programme “Alta Fedeltà” (High Fidelity) on the Rai television channel, and from then on, his success began, conquering the public all over the world.
With his romantic character, his air of innocence and his biting wit, Topo Gigio appealed to adults and children alike, and over the course of 60 years he was able to appear ever-new in order to entertain his many fans.
His career was that of an international super star, constantly travelling, from London to New York, from South America to Japan: TV, cinema, theatre, cartoons, sponsorships and much more. He appeared in Canzonissima (Italian musical variety TV programme), with Ed Sullivan in his Show, alongside the magician Mago Zurlì in the children’s singing contest Zecchino D’Oro, and he was even a Unicef ambassador.
Topo Gigio’s engaging magic has crossed epochs and generations, and... it never fails to surprise us!
To celebrate the 60-year life of Topo Gigio, we wished to recreate this character, today an iconic figure the world over, in his finest form and above all at his “real” size. This statuette was made directly from an original copy of the Topo Gigio puppet used by the animators to bring the figure to life for his television appearances: every detail has been closely studied and reproduced at 1:1 scale. This is the definitive version of the small, great mouse, the most endearing mouse in the world. At last, the real Topo Gigio has arrived.
