Federico Vellani's 1849


Around the middle of the 19th century, at least three groups of English businessmen requested permission to build a series of railroads in Sicily, in order to exploit the vast resources of the interior. King Ferdinand of the Two Sicilies rejected them owing to a misplaced nationalistic pride, and this wonderful but unlucky land lost an unrepeatable opportunity. Sicily obtained its first railway only in 1863, three years after the Italian Reunification.

1849 is a railroad game set in Sicily from 1849 to 1922. The players take on the role of railroad investors, promoters and Presidents with the general objective of making money. Their methods may reflect a greater or lesser degree of public responsibility depending on their personal inclinations.
