Abstract

[Autom. eng. transl.] In the Como area there were present between the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries the traditional forms of cetual self-organization of an oligarchic matrix in which the autonomy of government of the city patriciate was widespread. Perched jealously in the defense of its class privileges, the city of Como maintained in the ancient regime, together with the primacy of the General Council of the decurions, a predominance that not even the conquests of the territory over the centuries succeeded completely to scratch. The lakes and the oligarchies of the Terre del lago, separated at the time from the urban center above all for fiscal reasons, managed to protect their own interests through rural organisms deeply rooted in the ancient power structures, such as the general assembly of mayors of the countryside with based in Gravedona (except for the mayor of the separate land of Val d'Intelvi). The primacy of the city was felt, however, above all on the so-called "civil territory" (the four parish churches of Fino, Uggiate, Zesio Inferiore and Superiore) through the use of provincial budgets according to urban interests
