GAETANO Co KK
外楽COMPANY株式会社 is a Social Enterprise* created by Guy (Gaetano) Totaro in 2009 to promote his diverse and eclectic talents, skills, and schtick. The company’s name is an homage to guys late father and namesake. Guy imagined that he would someday return to Gaetano Sr’s island of Sicily and never dreamed he would find himself calling the island of Japan his home. Serendipitously, the kanji characters representing the phonetic pronunciation – GAI (外) and TANO (楽) – imply “funny foreigner” which, is exactly what Guy turned out to be.
