Hat tip to an Anonymous commenter for this post:
The picture below was featured in Mafia Wars' October 20 Game News as a teaser to Italy days before it went live:
If you compare the picture above to my impoverished Village below - still at Level I because I am only upgrading the Port to get the good Italy Loot items - you will see two things:
(1) How the Properties from Roma, Palermo, Venezia, Milano, and Napoli will look at Level X. Look at that Football Stadium! That Fishery! The bustling Port! The proud Villa (as compared to my hut).
(2) One or more additional Village Properties that Mafia Wars will add in Italy Region 6, Region 7, and Region 8... check out the multi-colored "bubble property" on the hill above the Port, and (maybe?) the storefront to the "right" of your Auto Boutique.
Remember, Mafia Wars Las Vegas added a new property to its Casino well after the Las Vegas was live, when it adding the Fountain as Districts 7 and 8 went live. I remember it well - because I had traded away all of my Concrete, Cinder Blocks, etc. and had to scramble to get more.
Anyway, a nice look into the future of Mafia Wars Italy. Thanks again to the poster who pointed this out.
