Milano skyline 02-1-
Milan (Milano) is one of the largest cities in Italy, located in the plains of Lombardy, and is one of the most highly developed urban centers in Europe. During the Middle Ages and Renaissance, it was a powerful militaristic city-state ruled by dukes.

Milan in The GladiatorEdit

Crosstime Traffic established a gaming shop called The Gladiator in the Milan of an alternate where the Soviet Union won the Cold War. Crosstime Traffic had hoped that with stores like The Gladiator, it could quietly introduce capitalist ideas and gradually push for a counterrevolution in that alternate. One of the most popular games the store sold was Rails across Europe, which soon proved so popular that The Gladiator hosted several tournaments for its customers. However, the Security Police of the Italian People's Republic learned of the store's purpose (but not its origins), and shut the store down.

Hoxha Polytechnic students Gianfranco Mazzilli and Annarita Crosetti harboured Eduardo Caruso, a clerk with the shop who'd been left behind when Crosstime Traffic pulled out.

Milan in The Hot WarEdit

Milan was targeted for invasion by the Soviet Union early in World War III,[1] finally falling to the Fifth Guards Tank Army on 30 April 1951.[2]

Milan in In the Presence of Mine EnemiesEdit

Milan football fans rioted in 2010 after a German team from Leipzig won a football match when the home team's goal was blocked on an offside call. The German Federation of Sport reacted by demanding an apology from their Italian counterparts and withdrew from competition with teams from the Italian Empire until the issue was resolved.[3]
