The 15th century (quattrocento) is a period of cultural changes, in which old, ancient ideas were reborn.
It is also a time of bloody wars and treacherous intrigues; Italy itself does'nt exist yet. States like the republics of Florence and Venice, the duchy of Milan, the kingdom of Naples and even the Papal states are fighting for supremacy.
The instability of the peninsula also arouses the political interests of non-Italian rulers like the Spanish and French kings, the German Emperor or the Turkish Sultan.
This is the time and realm of Genuises like Filippo Brunelleschi, Leonardo Da Vinci, Niccolò Machiavelli and Michelangelo etc.
But it's a strategical game board for power-hungry and ambitious warlords too. Like Francesco Sforza, Andrea Doria and Cesare Borgia etc.
Who will be able to subjugate the Italian states, to form a new nation, by unifying the Italian cultures and create a mighty empire?
Which dynasty will survive the Italian Wars? The shrewd and scandalous Borgia? The battle-tested Sforza? The wealthy and money-conscious Medici?
It's up to you!

I had the idea already about 3-4 years ago. After I realised, that there is still no mod about this topic, I decided to try it myself. I started to study the world of moding a few months ago. So, to be honest, I did'nt made that much right now. For example, I draw the map, and made lists about the provinces, a bunch of history-characters and dynasties, created new traits like "condottiere", "painter" or "musician" etc., wrote new cultures in the cultures-file, by splitting up "Italian" into "Tuscan", "Lombard", "Ligurian" etc. and I was searching for free, suitable renaissance-based pictures and music (I guess that's the most easiest things about the whole stuff).
Theoretically I know all the steps to do, but it's still too much for a single person. Actually, the public posting about the developing start up of this mod, should motivate me much more, to keep it up.
Supporting moder (does'nt matter, if you are experienced or just starting with it) are always welcome to join!
So, if you, like me, can't wait that long to see characters like Da Vinci or Cesare Borgia in a CK2 mod, just contact me via PM!
