The Italian cities are very tightly built. If you're going to have so many cities, you'll need a lot more resources there, too.
Also, I don't think Milan should flip to Genoa. Historically the four major powers of northern Italy were Venice, Genoa, Florence and Milan. Milan and Florence should start independent and have to be conquered. However, Genoa should probably have a city on Corsica that flips to it immediately (called Cardo before the flip, but Bastia thereafter).
There'll be a lot more resources in Italy than there currently are, don't worry.
I agree that Milan should stay independent, and I like the new placement better.
I disagree about having a city in Corsica to begin with. Corsica's within their core area, and they'll start with ships and settlers - but if we have an independent city on Corsica, unless it spawns 1 turn before Genoa does, it's going to be much bigger and more important than it would have been otherwise, and given that Genoa will be competing with Milan and Pisa for resources and food, it may outstrip the home city. Potentially problematic.
Jessiecat, I'd suggest moving Florence one more tile eastwards. That provides both cities with more breathing room, and it's not much of a stretch geographically.
I'll fix the rivers and resources as soon as I can get the mod running, which will hopefully be tomorrow.
