The '''Italian Wars''' are a popular period for [[SCA]] people to focus their activities, especially those interested in [[mercenary companies]] and other [[martial]] activities in the mid-[[Renaissance]].  There were many changes of allegiance during the wars, an activity that also appears to be popular at [[Rowany Festival]] and [[Spring War]].  The armour and weapons of the period are easy to find [[documentation]] for, and similarly the [[clothing]] and [[military costume]] of the period is colourful and attractive to wear, while not being of extraordinary difficulty for the more experienced [[costumer]].

The Italian Wars were a six-cornered grand melee between Milan, Venice, Genoa, Florence, the Papacy and Naples for domination of Italy. France looked good for a while, but in the end Spain (or more accurately the Hapsburg family) won.
