"Ragusa", or Dubrovnik, was not an Italian state.

Although the native Croats had a substantial cultural ties with Italy, they never thought of themselves as being Italian.

Great job! I love maps like this.

However, could you please consider also accepting some native italian names like "Monferrato", "Savoia" or "Mantova" instead of english exonyms only?

Venice only had very short-lived grip on several Apulian port cities around the turn of the century. Monopoli and Gallipoli were occupied in 1484, but Venice could only keep hold onto the former.

In 1495 and 1496, they also occupied (to varying degrees of success) Mola di Bari, Trani, Polignano a Mare, Otranto and Brindisi.

By 1509, Venice had lost control of all these possessions, but would (once again to varying degree) reconquer at least the three ports of Monopoli, Mola di Bari and Polignano a Mare in 1528, but finally lose any remaining control over them only two years later.
