Within the scope of foreign and Italian historiography no research has been made on the reception of the American Revolution inside the north-central Italian states: the Dukedom of Parma, Piancenza and Guastalla and the Dukedom of Modena. This current work is meant to be the introduction to a larger study on how one of these small political entities became involved with the events that, during the last quarter of the eighteenth century, were to have a profound effect on the course of history.
