The urban space of the Ancien Régime is now increasingly studied in view of the jurisdictional pluralism that characterised it. Based on this observation, the article analyses the powers that insisted on certain portions of the territory of a great metropolis in the 18th century: Naples. These portions depended on the Fondo della Separazione de' Lucri Militari, an institution created in 1737 by Charles of Bourbon as an instrument for managing military infrastructures. By studying the interactions between the new special jurisdiction created with the Fondo and the pre-existing ones (ordinary municipal and regal), the essay analyses the political confrontation and the ways in which social actors attempted to exploit the different jurisdictions to their own advantage.

Abstract

The urban space of the Ancien Régime is now increasingly studied in view of the jurisdictional pluralism that characterised it. Based on this observation, the article analyses the powers that insisted on certain portions of the territory of a great metropolis in the 18th century: Naples. These portions depended on the Fondo della Separazione de' Lucri Militari, an institution created in 1737 by Charles of Bourbon as an instrument for managing military infrastructures. By studying the interactions between the new special jurisdiction created with the Fondo and the pre-existing ones (ordinary municipal and regal), the essay analyses the political confrontation and the ways in which social actors attempted to exploit the different jurisdictions to their own advantage.
