The essay describes how Mexico became independent in 1821 as an empire inspired by principles derived from the Constitution of Cadiz. The new monarchy soon suffered a crisis, due to the conflict between some aspects of the Hispanic liberal paradigm and the political juridical ideas of the emancipatory process’ hero, then imperator, Agustín de Iturbide, supported by political and intellectual groups preferring constitutional models away from the Hispanic one. It will be analyzed how some of the most relevant questions posed by the "liberal revolutionary momentum" of the early Twenties of the XIX century were faced in Mexico during the ephemeral imperial experience, just as it happened in the coeval European contexts. Keywords: first Mexican Empire, Agustín de Iturbide, Constitution of Cadiz, liberal constitutionalism, liberal revolutions.

Keywords: Primo Impero messicano, Agustín de Iturbide, Costituzione di Cadice, costituzionalismo liberale, rivoluzioni liberali.
