Genoa and Venice are objectively the worst Italians.

Ragusa. I find it interesting how they kept being a typical Italian city-state even under Ottoman suzerainty.

Hard to say. Pre Medicean Florence, I guess. Overall Venice though.

i hate to admit it but i don't know much about history after the fall of Rome
i only like Firenze because of the literature and the architecture.

Easily Venice.

I go there every few years and loot it. Cause the primary holding is a city, it's easy to beseige and take some prisoners for ransoms and great blots.

Since you didn't specify time period, the Republic of Rome.

Milan is such a mysterious city to me because there is so little english scholarship on the subject because it never had the "muh republic" like Florence or Venice. But from what little I've read, it had a dynamic economy and industry longer than either Florence or Venice (say, from 1300 onward or so), great culture and visionary state builders. Genoa also interests me also because its less studied than venice but with an equally interesting republican set up.

senpai, Florence was never more than a Roman small town or military outpost. Read Gene Brucker's "Renaissance Florence" for a great introduction to the city-state as it is famously known.

interesting stuff, I vaguely recall reading about it. However, there's no doubt that Florentines and Venetians had so-called republics for longer periods of time. Florentine republicanism was especially popularized by Hans Baron from the 1930s and then in America when he got his work translated in the late 40s/early 50s. Venetian republicanism or "mixed state" has been a meme since the league of cambrai in the early 16th century. I'm pretty sure that Milan has been characterized as something of a vigorous proto-absolutist state whose vigorous economy epitomized northern italian dyanism vs. southern italian feudalism/barony. These are all stereotypes, but they have an enduring influence on scholarship.
