Silvio: Chief of Staff in the Court of Malfi
Money, hard liquor, ‘duckin’ and divin’ - wheeling/deeling’, likes to turn a trick. Eavesdropping.
Ferdinand (but understands his worth), mundane tasks - photography for example - given by Ferdinand, impropriety, being treated like a servant
"Don’t underestimate me, I may say little but I observe much. Ferdinand and the Cardinal may have the power and status but I’ve got the knowledge. Independent, intelligent, I look out for myself. Some may call me Machiavellian, but at the end of the day (play!) I’m still standing."
FAVOURITE SILVIO QUOTE:
‘That cardinal...He lifts up ‘s nose, like a foul porpoise before a storm.’
