Harlequin, Brighella, Pierino are characters from the commedia dell'arte, belonging to the Zanni social class - servants. This Venetian name of the social class comes from the name Giovanni, which was so popular among the common people that it became a common noun. Harlequin is the liveliest character in commedia dell'arte plays. The character is extremely cheerful, optimistic, sometimes naive, cunning, and mischievous, constantly getting into funny situations and easily making foolish mistakes.
