Italian Wars: Joint Crisis Committee

Welcome to the Joint Crisis Committee at SCMUN 2019!

In the middle of the Italian Renaissance, the Italian Peninsula is fraught with conflict. The peninsula is divided into several powerful city-states controlled by infamous families like the Sforza and the Medici, Venetian traders are amassing wealth faster than ever before, and in Rome, the Pope rules all. As political tensions reach a boiling point, the Sforza have invited the French into Italy to be a new ally. What they didn’t expect was that French movement in Northern Italy would cause Spain to enter Southern Italy to reaffirm their claim on Naples. Now, the peninsula has become a battleground as all city-states must choose a side in the growing conflict.

Please note there will be TWO committees formed on this topic, one representing the Spanish side, and the other representing the French side.
