Hello BGG,
I'd be very grateful for some boardgame recommendations please.

My other half is a history teacher and because he is awesome, uses boardgames in class when he can. He will be teaching new A-level (post 16)course on Italian renaissance and wants a game for class that has a strong historical theme and mechanic (e.g trade) not too abstract ( we already thought about Splendor and Condottiere ) Any suggestions very welcome thanks

The Princes of Florence perhaps or La Città?

I thought of De Vulgari Eloquentia but maybe it is a bit on the heavy side

More a Euro and not so much dripping with theme, but fulfilling most of your requirements: Genoa

Princes of the Renaissance does a surprisingly good job of exploring the interplay between war, trade and politics, and especially the glorious cynical underpinnings that Machiavelli wrote about.

A +1 for The Princes of Florence which is more thematic than it perhaps initially appears.

Signorie is a pretty cool game, a bit meaty first play .

If you can find it, as it was published by Avalon Hill and long OOP: Machiavelli.

Leonardo da Vinci would fit the theme.
