Ezio followed Bartolomeo into his home, to which the latter was looking around frantically.
- Bartolomeo: Bianca! Bianca!
- Ezio: Is everything alright?
- Bartolomeo: What do you think?! Look at this place! And poor Bianca... if something's happened to her...
Bartolomeo looked behind a table and found a large sword.
- Bartolomeo: Ah-ha! Oh, my darling. Thank God you're alright. Ezio, meet Bianca. Bianca, Ezio.
- Ezio: Charmed...
- Bartolomeo: So, I know your name, but not why you are here.
- Ezio: I have... business with Silvio Barbarigo. I was told you could help.
- Bartolomeo: Ah! It would be my honor!
- Ezio: But it's going to require more than just the two - er, three of us to weaken his forces. How do you suggest we proceed?
- Bartolomeo: I'll go and ready my men for battle. While I do this, I'd like you to rescue those who were captured during Silvio's assault. I cannot, in good conscience, leave them behind.
- Ezio: Intesi (Understood). I will attend to it at once.
- Bartolomeo: Good luck out there, Ezio.
Ezio found the first of the mercenaries.
- Guard 1: What to do with this lot?
- Guard 2: Flood the cage, I say. Drown them all and be done with it!
- Guard 3: Silvio wants them alive. Thinks he can turn them to our cause.
- Guard 2: I wouldn't count on it. They're as loyal as they are stupid.
Ezio rescued the first of the mercenaries.
- Mercenary: Many thanks for the aid, friend! We'd like to fight with you - if you'll have us?
Ezio found more of the mercenaries.
- Guard 4: Your master's in chains and your company broken. Come tomorrow, you'll all be hanged!
- Mercenary: So be it! We are prepared to die with honor!
- Guard 4: Hah! The only things you'll be dying with are soiled breeches and broken necks!
Ezio rescued the mercenaries.
- Mercenary: We are with you friend! Only lead the way!
Ezio found the last of the mercenaries.
- Guard 5: Poor bastard. I heard Marco made him the way he is.
- Guard 6: And now he's been passed to Silvio. Like a dog.
Ezio rescued the last of the mercenaries.
- Mercenary: Let us join you! Together we will crush the Barbarigo!
Ezio succeeded in freeing all of Bartolomeo's men.
- Bartolomeo searching for his sword, Bianca, was alluded to in Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood, during which Bartolomeo searched for his wife, Pantasilea Baglioni. To this, Ezio remarked "Did you check behind the table?", referencing how Bartolomeo found his sword Bianca behind a table.
