Palermo e Messina: residenza viceregia e questione dei Tribunali nel dibattito secentesco

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

The essay deals with the theme of the rivalry between Palermo and Messina for the role of capital city of the Kingdom of Sicily, and proposes a re-reading of the propaganda sources produced by both sides during the seventeenth century, under Philip IV. New interesting elements of reflection emerge on the political role of the viceroy; on the question of the Courts - real centers of power, with strong links to the world of finance and politics - and on the hegemony of the “togated” class; on the characteristics of the function of capital of the kingdom, on the different ways of participating in the Monarchy and of representing oneself
