There are a great number of other people working to support the art of commedia and i Firenzi, and a few of them are here:
Gavin has helped a lot with costuming and general support.
Catherine has taught us a number of aerial dance moves that have powered our physical comedy.
The Windmasters Hill Rapier Community has been particularly supportive, although the connection between fencing and commedia has yet to be understood.
The entire Barony of Windmasters Hill has been very supportive of i Firenzi by allowing us to take time and space at local events to perform pretty much any time we ask.
King Amos, King Ragnarr, King Christoph, Baron Daemon and Baroness Typhaine, and Baroness Murienne of Sacred Stone were all gracious enough to perform bit parts for us at special events and really add a level of excitement that only comes with royalty and eminence.
We also have some beloved alumni that we miss: Andreas de Caunteton played Dottore for us once and of course Domenico helped establish our troupe with his Capitano.
