We all know that publishers like the exotic, because the paying public likes the exotic. But there are only so many cities with exotic names in the world. It's a finite resource that publishers are squandering at an alarming rate. Here's one look at a dwindling supply, Italy. Games named after Italian towns. Note - just the name of the city, not the Battle of SuchandSucho or Princes of Whatevero please.

Another little town, with a great importance, not only for Napoleon but for all italian people too.

Edit: Oops, is a battle, but is a town too.
