KWISS was scheduled to be held March 19-22, 2020 during Gulf Wars (GW), a multi-kingdom 9-day event occurring yearly in Lumberton, Mississippi. KWISS 2020 include classes, demonstrations, activities, and tournaments focused on the historical A&S of the Italian peninsula. Alas, the plaque arrived and this in person event was cancelled.
The spirit of sprezzatura prevailed despite this cancellation. Out of the depths of despair, akin to the dark lagoon which birthed Botticelli’s Venus, a virtual idea was born.
In 2020 the inaugural Known World Salone di Fiesole (KWISF), the first (international) Known World event in the history of the Society for Creative Anachronism, was held on May 8-9. We held this event Decameron style, at our virtual villa in the hills of Fiesole to wile away the hours avoiding the plague. Visit the link below to view the class recordings on YouTube.
Enjoy watching the offerings from our 2020 event. We held this event to mimic those avoiding the plague in historical Tuscany. This is the FIRST virtual Known World event in the SCA and was held on May 8 – 9, 2020. #SCA #MySCA #labelladonnahistory #SCAatHome #Italian Salone #SalonediFiesole
