Italian city's names

Fri Mar 16, 2018 4:16 pm

There're some typos and inaccuracy in the name of the Italian regions/cities; nothing serious, normal misspelling mistakes.

If it could help, I can write a list of correct and adequate names, let me know .

From west to the east, from north to south, on the right the correct/preferable form


Duchy of Savoia

Nice= this is the french name, the italian and savoyard one was Nizza, chose the one you prefer
Aequi=Acqui

Republic of Venice

Chiogga=Chioggia

Pula=Pola (Pula is the croat name, Pola is the venetian name, I know this a critical matter, no intention of sustain any kind of nationalistic issue which I entirely refuse, just speaking about name in the XVIII century)

Split=Spàlato (same as Pula/Pola choose the one you prefer)

Duchy of Parma

Pontremon=Pontremoli

Duchy of Modena

Gisa=Cisa

Gran Duchy of Tuscany

Prato=Pistoia (Prato became more important than Pistoia only during the XX century; being from Tuscany, I know that people from Prato will not accept this, but such is life :evilgrin: )

Futa=ok, but it was in the Gran Duchy of Tuscany, not in the Duchy of Modena

Sienna=Siena (I know, we use double more than any other language, but this time is the french that outdo us)

Grosseto= ok, but it was in the Gran Duchy of Tuscany, not in the Papal State

Papal State

Commacchio=Comacchio

Kingdom of Naples

La Magdalena=La Maddalena, but better choice is Tempio Pausania, the most important urban center in that area at that time

Bosa= Alghero, bigger and mor important city than Bosa

Poppoli=Popoli

Casserta=Caserta


Kings of S. John

Valetta=Valletta
