Arch Nemesis 1

The Condottiero with his guards

  • Condottiero: Non si passa! (None shall pass!) Do you hear me? Until you've all submitted and given yourself over to the prophet, Savonarola - this bridge will remain closed to you! I hear you moaning and complaining. You say you have things to do. Places to go. Obligations to fulfill. Hah! You have but ONE obligation - TO SUBMIT! Why fight us? Why resist us? The city is ours. Your precious Medici have abandoned you! Fled into the wastes to wallow in self pity! Savonarola wants only the best for you. A city free of vice and temptation. A people united by faith. All men are equal in the eyes of the Lord - and so they shall be in Firenze! This is a chance for us to turn over a new leaf! To leave behind our miserable past - and return to simpler times. I am here to help. To lead you into a new future. Only accept our gift. Continue to refuse, and I fear you'll have to contend with more than just a shattered bridge. Understand my intention is not to threaten! I merely seek to open your eyes to a greater truth - that times are changing. No... that times HAVE changed. And nothing good will come of resisting...

Ezio assassinated The Condottiero

  • Ezio: You wear a noble's clothes. How is it Savonarola charmed you?
  • Condottiero: Wealth and power do not ensure contentment. I wanted even more...
  • Ezio: And now, instead, you have nothing. Questo non è che un atto dovuto (This is something that must be done)... Requiescat in pace (Rest in peace).


Ezio succeeded in assassinating the Condottiero. The Medici guards assumed control of the area and the bridge was opened.
