Introduction This mod adds a new civ: the Venetian Republic. I'm aware that there is already some Italy mods. But for me, Italy refers only to the most modern state born around 1860, not to the states that existed in the Italian Peninsula before that. The Venetian Republic existed from the 5th century AD to 1797. Features Leader: Andrea Gritti Trait: The City of Masks; each kind of food or luxury resource improved near a city gives culture. UU: Galleass, replacing Caravel; stronger but less suited to exploration. UU: Condottieri, replacing Longwordman; doesn't require Iron but has a higher maintenance.
