I've always been a touch sceptical about this -- wasn't Bruno hosted by
Sidney and Greville, or at least met Sidney?  Not the same social and
intellectual circle, that.

Also, Bruno was in England around 1583 (I think) -- a bit early for the
time-frame of the putative School of Night.

Not normally, but there are anti-Stratfordians who have usurped the
"School of Night" for their own purposes. They cast a very broad net.
