Don't let the AI manage anything, never build farms (they increase squalor in the long run) but all the other things that give you money like markets. Reduce your military costs, your cities can have a few units free of upkeep, all others should be deleted or replaced (except for frontline-cities which need a stronger army of course). Don't use more ships than necessary, they cost a lot of money. Kill some of your obsolete but high-upkeep units, especially those that don't have much experience. Set taxes (or build policiy in those cities that don't have a general) as high as possible, happy citizens are dangerous as they increase population wich leads to squalor. Send spies infected with plague into those cities that have too much unrest. Alternatively you can let problematic settelements rebel and kill the population if you retake them.

Build merchants and try to capture other merchants, this will not only give you money but also increase your merchant's experience. Northern Italy is a good location to look for enemy merchants. Once your merchants are experienced send them to the south-east or sout-western corner of the maps, where you will find gold, ivory and other nice things. Make sure to change your capital to another city and back before you end a turn as the trade-income is not calculated correctly otherwise.

Send out some diplomats and sell your map-information and trade-rights to other nations.

Like this you will soon get tens of thousands per turn.

Cut your army in half, you likely have far too many men.
