I've always liked Italians, but the fact they can build inquistors in Discovery confused me, would it be useful for a rush?

I like(d) playing mostly defensively, with only small raids od Utilis and Condotierris. After I defeat some waves of crap enemies, I counter-attack in a blitz and f***uck them off!!!

I can see that you're quite wordy. Topmodel
And so I thought, Italians make good turtlers. I'd still like to see other people's opinions, though.

I like to boom, not just with italians, but with any civ, a bit of turtling depending on the civ, but not mainly.

Oh yeah, I might speak a little...indecvate. If it bothers you (and you're not Swede or German Devil ) I might just try to change my vocabulary, but there are only 0,00001% chances of success..

Surprisingly, rush for italy is actually good, since the first politician is rather cheap (600 food) and ages you up much quicklier you can take the risk of taking all your merchants to gold.
Thanks to the improved gold gathering and xp gathering, combined with the mercenary band cards makes you able to create a fast and reliable rush with this civ.

You are extremely wrong.
How you defend swiss or ottomans in colonial against village harassment with polish cavalry after 6 minutes?
How you as swiss or ottomans defends yourselves to come USA with 3 petards after 5 minutes gameplay and demolish your Town Center?
Think about this.
