After a new world record, brothers Giang perform circus act on streets of Italy

After setting a Guinness World Record, Vietnamese acrobats Quoc Co and Quoc Nghiep took a photo tour of Milan, Italy in combination with their circus performances.
Circus artists Quoc Co and Quoc Nghiep performed circus acts in Milan in the photo shoot called "Vietnamese circus in Italy - the stage in real life".
They saw the world-famous city as a giant stage. In the photo, the brothers performed at the 127-year-old Vittorio Emanuele II Memorial located on the Piazza Del Duomo Square.

Quoc Co - Quoc Nghiep posed in front of Cesare Ponti Sede Bank - the Milan branch.

The Cathedral of Milan is the world's 4th largest Roman Catholic church built in 1386. It took 500 years to fully complete the construction.
The two circus performers in suits went for a walk. After that, the Giang brothers moved to the ancient Giureconsulti building near Piazza Del Duomo Square.
Quoc Co - Quoc Nghiep at the ancient road of Dante leading to Sforzesco castle. 
The photo shoot took six hours.
The artists visited the 1,500-year-old Sforzesco Castle and performed their circus act of  the past 20 years.
The last destination was the 164-year-old Arco Della Pace, built during the Napoleonic period.
The two brothers have gone to Italy many times to travel, perform and set Guinness World Records. After this trip, they will officially end their elite career, and will no longer try to set new world records.
