Personal History:

Alison Aria Zacconi was born on April 1, 1930, to circus performers Joseph Zacconi and Florence Bellance Zacconi. Constantly on the move, Alison never stayed in a place for too long, her parents constantly moving throughout Europe as the show continued on.

During the war years, Joseph enlisted into the Italian Royal Army as a tank commander, while Florence and Alison were sent to safer havens in the Italian mountainside. Once in a while, Joseph would return to visit his wife and daughter, occasionally showing off any spoils or showing pictures of the places he went, something that always brought joy to Alison.

During the Allied invasion of Italy, Florence assisted the war effort by providing food and basic care to the injured, using her skills obtained through the circus to provide entertainment and solace in bleak times. She always brought Alison with her, to keep her out of harms' way (Alison didn't mind the soldiers, and enjoyed playing card games with them in exchange for stories), and would take Alison away once the work was complete. As Alison grew older, she taught Alison the basics of medical care herself, and inspired Alison to be something greater than a simple traveling entertainer.

After the war was declared over in Europe, the Zacconi family was reunited, and they traveled the ruined countryside, along with their surviving troupe, bringing joy and help to the villages who were scorched by the fighting. Alison's skills were called upon to treat others, especially survivors who were left brutalized from the intense fighting, as well as those who were caught in the crossfire, and otherwise had no means of getting the medical help they needed. Many stories have spread across the Italian countryside of how salvation was always brought on the treads of a L3/35, with Alison and her family sitting on top, and a tractor of critical supplies dragged behind.

Alison would later go on to complete her studies at Hamburg University, eventually graduating with a bachelor's of science in 1951 (a lot of the money was attained from various jobs and donations, including community service, salvage, and likewise). She would go on to eventually get her doctorate in medicine in 1958, her theoretical and practical experience augmented through her forays throughout war-torn Italy, and volunteer service with the Italian Red Cross (and, through it, the International Committee of the Red Cross).

Alison was eventually hired by the Foundation in November of 1958, following a positive review by one of her superiors following operations in North Korea. Alison was subsequently screened and cleared for further processing.
