The Military School of Modena: Institutional features and political role - Bruno Giordano’s book on the officers educated at the Modena military school opens a number of different paths of research. This comment focuses on institutional and political aspects: what is the place of the Modena experience in the history of military training? And how did it affect the relations between politic and the military in the Cisalpino-Italic system? In the first area special attention s given to the Italian tradition of military academies and especially to the model represented by the Collegio militare of Verona; in the second field the case of Modena is used to emphasize the difficulties and contradictions arising as a consequence of the predominance of the French influence.
