The Arte di Calimala, the guild of cloth finishers and merchants in foreign cloth, was one of the greater guilds of Florence, who arrogated to themselves the civic power of the Republic of Florence during the Late Middle Ages.
In Calimala, the players act as members of the guild, produce and trade cloth, and gain prestige by delivering their goods to foreign markets, while contributing to the construction of buildings, and sponsoring artworks in Florence.
The players assign their employees to various streets within the city. They stay on their assigned places for awhile, carrying out actions several times whenever other employees arrive. Eventually, they are promoted into the city council and trigger scorings for all players.
