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]].

If you are from one of the Italian cities, you should be loyal to that city rather than to 'Italy' as a whole. The Wars are bad, but the Barbarians being invited into Italy are worse.

French should be relaxed and comfortable about the wars ; after all, is it not a fine life for a gentleman to live on his estates in the winter, and then campaign in Italy in the summer ?

English should keep an eye out for the main chance ; [[John Hawkwood]] and co made a decent living ("Dont wanna hire us, guv ? Thats OK. I'm sure one of your neighbours will").
