Abandonware DOS title

Games set in Italy

The land of "La Dolce Vita" and exquisite cuisine is not particularly known for its game developers, nor for being a popular setting in old PC games. The games set in the italian peninsula are mainly set in ancient Rome, which is understandable for obvious reasons. A few exceptions are some games set in Venice and soccer games (oh, I forgot, Italy is also the land of soccer...).
