Diplomacy. How to Play Italy. Part 1 of 5http://www.historygamer.com/2010/09/12/diplomacy-how-to-play...
In top level games, Italy is the hardest nation to play, a long way back from the second hardest -- Austria Hungary. In this article I cover the standard opening moves and throw in my own experience having played diplomacy over many years.
Italy of course has the immediate problem of what to do with Austria Hungay. Either player could sweet talk the other then back stab on move one, a move which could knock out the other player straight away. Ideally then you want a good (trusting) relationship with Austria.
