sand fingers have contributed, with the substance of his extra

Ai cambiamenti di quegli anni parteciparono attivamente anche le antiche casate del baronato romano non come forze antagoniste rispetto al potere papale o a quello imperiale, ma piuttosto come interpreti di un proprio specifico disegno politico: l. a. conservazione e l’accrescimento dei loro stati.

Ma il graduale inserimento nelle configurazioni di potere asburgica e pontificia nell’Italia centrale avviò anche los angeles loro trasformazione da «veri signori di quelle loro terre» a vassalli del papa.
