18: Persona | Ciao a tutti, My name is Angelo, I am 25 years old. I am a baker in the town of Verona. My daily job activities consist of baking bread and selling it to the towns people I am the middle class, I don’t make too much or too little. I am 5 foot 9 inches and 170 pounds. I have short brown hair and big blue eyes. I try to be as friendly as possible but some of my customers are so snobby and rich. I am busy because my store is always crowded but I am attentive. I'm also hard working because my customers are some of the richest people in town, they love my bread and I do my best to keep a good reputation with them. I try not to be too talkative considering I need to stay on task, otherwise i'd have to cheat my customers out of bread and money like a lot of other bakers have to do. I would say that I am calm for the most part. I am not as skinny as most people, I eat a lot of bread, ironic! But I am a healthy weight. I have a natural face with small features. My tunic is homespun by my wife and I generally wear a shirt or vest made of cotton. My shoes are leather. I wear an apron on top of this to protect me from the flour. My home isn't as big as everyone else's but it is average. It is usually cold and damp inside and can tend to get dark. We have few windows which must be small openings with wooden shutters for security purposes. I have a wife and life most people, I married at the age of 19. We have 2 babies. One is 3 and the other is 1. I do everything I can to provide for them. Considering bread is the most important component of a diet and it is easily accessible we eat a lot of that. We are lucky enough that we can eat Manchet, which is what the upper classes eat. Although I haven't much education, my father was also a baker and I assisted him as a child. I learned the business and quickly took over. I generally like to stay neutral for the sake of my business. I sell bread to the Capulet chefs but other than that I don't come into contact with them too often..
