Well, David, I hope your brain is working better by now ... I'm not sure 
if /mine/ is, but, since I don't have your original post, but I /do/ 
have the Bergamo Std font here, I just loaded it like this:

\setmainfont{Bergamo Std}

The bold and italics work fine, as in:

Here's an example of Bergamo Std font\dots

\dots and here's some \textbf{bold text}.

\textit{Difficult firefly.}

{\bfseries\itshape Wow!}

Then, as an alternative to other workable solutions, I loaded a specific 
size the "XeTeX" way:

\font\fred="Bergamo Std" at 60pt

used in the document as:

\centerline{\fred Hi!}

And that seemed to work, too.
