Elite Collaboration

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


Significant segments of local elites collaborated with the French administration throughout the Nardon–Junot (later Nardon–Pérignon) tenures. They did so largely on their terms, displaying remarkable agency. In Parma, feudal landowners and urban professionals formed a more homogenous upper stratum than in other Northern Italian regions, mainly because the more revolutionary-minded elements left the duchies following France’s initial hands-off policies (analysed in Chap. 3 ). This resulted in straightforwardly pragmatic relations with the French, with elites cooperating in some areas of activity and deftly bypassing the French embrace in others.
