Starting from analysis of some recent publications, this article intends to reflect on the origin and evolution of historiographic concepts and categories which, in recent decades, have become important instruments of investigation and interpretation for studies on the Spanish Monarchy between the 16th and 17th centuries. The constant and fruitful dialogue between Italian and Spanish historiography has enriched the panorama of research on forms and spaces of power within the vast imperial complex of Austrias, on government practices, on relations between the center of Madrid and the various Reinos belonging to the Crown. The reconstruction of historical events and social-political dynamics has benefited from terms and concepts that have provided a significant contribution in terms of decoding and framing, offering useful points of reference in a problematic and comparative key and keeping the scientific debate lively, constructive and always current.
