Venice developed as a trading center in the Islamic world since the early middle ages. Exotic goods were sent there from the Byzantine Empire, creating a market for valuable goods.

Venice/ Venezia
Genoa/Genova

The city state supported the industry of trading. Trading privileges were granted from the Byzantine and German emperors, and Mohammedans. Goods supplied the entire country, as well as neighboring countries through this process.
Political
Who controlled the city state? What type of allegiances existed? What type of government did the city state have?

The head of government in Venice was called the Doge. Only the families of of wealthy noblemen were allowed to vote for the doge. These families however, only made up 2% of the population. This made up the oligarchy that ruled Venice. Venice was a republic.

Thus arose the Venetian merchant aristocracy, which in time took over the government of the city. In the sixth century, Venice was governed by tribunes, overseen by a duke, or doge. There was also an assembly of the people, which became powerless long before it was formally abolished in the fifteenth century. Until the eleventh century the doge's power increased, but it weakened until he became only the presiding officer in a state governed by a merchant oligarchy. The oligarchy exercised its power through a Great Council and a Small Council. The Small Council of six was a permanent adviser. The Great Council, which came to have well over two thousand members, was the seat of sovereignty, in which supreme power resided and from which other governmental bodies were formed. One was the Senate, which by the fourteenth century was the center of public administration, handling the day-to-day business of government.
Social
How was the social system structured?
The social system was structured with three classes: First there is the Upper class called the aristocracy, below them wear the cittandi originani which means origand cittzens, then the third class was the common people.
Military
Was the military powerful? Did the city-state control other territories?


Political
Who controlled the city-state? What type of allegiances existed? What type of government did the city-state have?
The new ruling class, called the popolo, or people, was divided into guilds. There were twenty-one of these, consisting of the seven greater guilds and the fourteen lesser guilds. The members of the greater guilds were commonly known as the popolo grasso, or fat people, as distinguished from the popolo minuto, or little people, who belonged to the lesser guilds. Among the greater guilds were the wool manufacturers, the wool finishers, the silk merchants, and the bankers. As the instrument of their domination, they established an executive body of six priors (the number was later increased to eight).
Between the league of Cambrai (1508) and the treaty of Cambrai (1529), the territories of Milan, Venice, the papal states and Naples grow or shrink, and abruptly suffer changes of allegiance, according to the temporary effects of battles such as Agnadello (1509), Marignano (1515), Pavia (1525) and the sack of Rome by imperial troops in 1527."

Florence had a system called guilds. There was the greater guilds and the lesser guilds.
Economic
Florence was built on the Arno River which was a trade route for centuries. Also Florence grew so much in the 13th - 14th century AD because it had a very well established banking industry. This industry lent money to the town's merchants and nobles, who would use it to trade and then return with interest. This helped the economy so much that Florence became one of the richest city states at the time.

The city state controlled territory on the Italian mainland.
The aggressive policies of both Venice and the Visconti made it inevitable that Venice and Milan would become enemies. During the last years of Visconti rule, Venice allied with Florence against them Florence abandoned the Venetian alliance and aided the new ruling house of Milan.
Art, culture and intellectual growth were very important in Florence, Italy during renaissance because they promoted the town and local talent in the area.

Military
Was the military powerful? Did the city state control other territories?
The military in Florence was simple yet also effective.It was organized by Guilds and Gonfaloniers who commanded various companies. These companies formed the military/army forces. They were commonly known and referred to as "the people's army". The people's army was fairly powerful and overthrew the Swabian Podestà (or Swabian Dictator).

Florence had tried to expand into the countryside just outside the City-state, but was coming into conflicts with neighboring cities. There was a struggle with Pisa and it lasted for centuries! Florence has had it's fair share of conflict and struggle and they have always been able to get out of it.

Florence is a model of the Renaissance culture and I do believe that many of the Italian City-states were influenced by Florence.
