This chapter examines the prevailing aristocratic mentality, together with the connected themes of urban relations with and attitudes towards the countryside. For countrymen it was no doubt difficult to distinguish between Lucchese citizens and the state which they controlled. It was for this reason that rural conspirators looked to political revolution and to the restoration of princely rule. But there is no simple identification of the interests of the state with the private interests of the leading citizens who dominated its councils.

Keywords:   Lucca, urban relations, countryside, rural conspirators
