Question Description


The Italian city-states depended on commerce and the wealth of merchants for their growth. Business was the most important thing for these cities. Their survival depended on attracting commerce to the city. This is true of many modern cities, as well.

Imagine you are a merchant with commerce experience in the five major Italian city-states. It would benefit your business to attract more people to trade with in these places. In addition, many merchants look to you for advice on where to conduct their trade. Your task is to summarize the reasons each of these city-states are important and worthy of their business.

  • Geographic location
  • Natural resources
  • Wealth
  • Existing businesses
  • Labor skills available
  • Population
  • Languages spoken
