La Piazzaforte di Casale Monferrato Durante la Guerra di Successione Spagnola 1701-1706

Details

This volume illustrates the structure and salient features of the fortified town of Casale Monferrato during the Spanish Succession War (1700 – 1714). After the citadel’s initial construction in 1591, it was repaired by the Gonzaga Family at the end of 16th century. In 1696, the French returned Casale to the Duke of Mantova, only to reoccupy it indefinitely in 1701. At that time, the fermeture was planned, which re-fortified the part of the fortress damaged during its destruction. After summarising Casale’s strategic role in the 17th century within the policies of Spain, France, Savoy and Mantova, this volume presents the French engineer Paul Francois d’Astier’s documents and drawings, stored in the French Military Archives, Vincennes, and State Archives, Turin. These demonstrate what was prepared on the occasions of those interactions. Italian text.
