Try Schola Saint George. They teach Italian longsword of Fiore de Liberi following the original texts.

The biggest advantage of the SCA is it’s the biggest. It’s the group most likely to have a local chapter near you. In terms of authentic techniques, it may not be what you are looking for. Some of the rules are written with safety in mind more than authenticity. For that reason, some people look at SCA fighting as more of a combat sport than a historical martial art.
