I was searching for some info here, but it seems nobody posted anything about this, yet.
Uplay.it announced a new, limited (1500 numbered copies), restyled, luxury edition of Principi di Firenze.
https://www.uplay.it/gioco-da-tavolo-Principi-di-Firenze---E...
Note: this edition seems to be only in italian. That's why they (uplay) didn't include a full description on the english version of that page, I suppose.
Anyway, it seems a HUGE improvement, stylishly speaking!

Are you just commenting on the new art for the artists, or is there something I'm missing on the page? The actual game images I'm seeing are just the BGG gallery.

For the record: Princes is one of my favourite games, I would definitely be willing to pony up some money for a deluxe edition, and having it be in Italian would not be a downside for me; it just seems like there isn't much in the way of actual information on the page you linked to yet.

The "actual game images" are not related to the new edition. As you say, it's just the "old" BGG gallery. I'm commenting the new art but the description seems to suggest much more than that:
"Questa nuova edizione internazionale presenta una veste grafica rinnovata, una migliore identificazione con Firenze, con illustrazioni ispirate alla città e i nomi degli artisti e degli edifici nelle schede da gioco in italiano."
->
"This new international edition features a renewed graphic design, a better identification with Florence, with illustrations inspired by the city and artist/building names written in italian on the player boards (?)."

I can't find anything more detailed. That's why I came here today, BTW cool

Fair enough!

I am definitely interested in an integration with the Italian theme; just seeing Brunelleschi’s dome on the cover has whetted my appetite, but I would like to see a bit more before committing to a purchase.

Hopefully more information comes out soon though, I would love to the rest of the graphic design.

According to the Italian description, this edition will have:

- high quality components
- linen-finished cards
- 58 metal coins in 3 custom models
- cloth bag for the coins
- velvet-like insert

Artwork by Mirco Paganessi looks very nice:

Is there any more info on this ?

Release date of course, but also more photos of the actual components (not paying 80 euros on just a description...).

I found pictures on

https://www.goblins.net/phpBB3/principi-di-firenze-deluxe-in...

In November they said it would be ready in a month. I went ahead an preordered. Free shipping is only in Italy, but you can get 5% off instead of their bonus points. Came out to €94.15 to Norway.

Here is the latest:

As we have said at other times in this thread, there have been problems and delays in production totally independent of us. We got angry, we solicited with every means and did everything possible not to disappoint those who had preordained the game. Evidently it went wrong, we are very sorry, but we had our hands tied.

Now we can finally say with absolute certainty that they have left and, save shipwreck, will arrive at the end of February.

In the old edition the minimum number of players was 3. Now in this new edition the minimum number of players is 2. Have anything changed in the regulation? Have they inserted any variant? How does it work in two players? Does it remain valid according to you? Thank you.

I confirm there are only 5 forest tiles. Does anybody have an idea on the correct way to put the components into the box?

Everybody should now have received the missing forest tile and the rest of the production has been fixed. So no more problems from now on.

About the way to store the pieces, we are going to upload a video to show the correct way to put the components back into the box.
