«Degna secondo le mire del mondo d’un secolo migliore». Maria Carolina d’Asburgo-Lorena a Palermo


The essay reconstructs the events connected with the presence of Ferdinand and Maria Carolina in Palermo, the capital of the Kingdom of Sicily, where they stopped in December 1798 after a journey full of obstacles. Although distant and only indirectly affected by the dramatic events surrounding the republican experiments, the city - suffering from the political emergency and the unstable military situation - lived in fear of a feared French invasion and in the fear of the simultaneous presence of Spanish and English Troops caused tension.
