Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


[automatically translated] Between 1616 and 1618 the Spanish Monarchy and the Venetian Republic found themselves involved, albeit indirectly, in a clash in the Adriatic. The dispute - whose origins are to be found in a previous conflict between the Serenissima and the Archduke Ferdinand of Styria - involved the Italian territories of the Monarchy, who actively participated in the control of the Mediterranean. The essay aims is to highlight the role played by Sicily in defense of the Mare Nostrum and the creation of a bloc capable of preventing the passage of the Dutch boats, is to highlight the contrasts and the jurisdictional conflicts that at this juncture intercorsero between Duke de Osuna, viceroy of Naples, and the Count of Castro, the Viceroy of Sicily.
