The Republic of Venice

This Monopoly pays homage to the Serenissima by Francesco Verni.

The Lion of San Marco, an ancient eighteenth-century shoe, a pigeon. These are not the clues to a historical thriller set in Venice but the pawns of a board game.

This time you can play directly with the Republic of Venice. All the boxes have been adapted to the times of the Doges, starting from the "cheap" Vicolo Stretto to the precious Parco della Vittoria, which became the domains of the Serenissima.

The board is divided between a part dedicated to land domains (from Belluno to Bergamo) and a second to those "Da Mar", from Istria to Dalmatia, from Greece to Constantinople. The most sought-after properties in the classic Monopoly, Parco della Vittoria and Viale dei Giardini have become, Palazzo Ducale and Piazza San Marco.

The game becomes a historical and geographical tale, a visit to distant places that smell of spices and to cities and places that we frequent every day, but often forgetting their history. In place of the stations there are bridges, in addition to the three on the Grand Canal also the Bridge of Sighs, and instead of the electric and hydraulic company there are the islands of Murano and Burano.
