Abstract

[Autom. eng. transl.] The study shows that in Italy the reception of the French model took place with a thousand hesitations and very gradualness within a very confused and contradictory institutional framework linked to the progressive breakdown of the ancient constitutional structures. At the departmental level, for example, while they had already been suppressed in France since the year VIII, from 1802 to 1805 the departmental administrations established by the law of the 1st thermidor year V (18 July 1797) were maintained alongside the prefects with the traditional assignment of the division of the burdens, of the collection of taxes and of the management of departmental funds: but also in Bergamo our study shows that these administrations soon manifested bodies by their nature contrary to the government and the tension that ensued with the prefect failed only when in 1805 they were suppressed and the powers were completely assumed by the prefects themselves, established since 1802 as "immediate organs of the government in the department". The study also allows us to delineate another aspect relating to the social arrangements of the time, that of the formation of a clerical class which, together with prefects, deputy prefects, delegates and councilors of the prefecture and local notables, established the administrative staff of the prefectures and acquired a growing self-awareness and the new dignity of the public function.
