Summary
  • From Jules Mazarin (1602-1661), his contemporaries have said everything, in the tone of emphasis and admiration as well as the mode of detestation and mockery. Today, historians want to retain the figure of the statesman, the prowess of politics, the patience of the diplomat, the generosity of the patron and the taste of the collector. The success of the man who brought to France almost all his family, including his famous nieces, seems so admirable. However, the character rout as soon as it is brought back on the Italian lands which saw it being born. Audacious or defeated in negotiation, in a hurry and unreasonable in action, left and passionate in expression, Mazarin, in his relations with Rome and with Italy, is not always the one expected. Questioning the links of Mazarin with the Italy of Seicento makes it possible to better understand the man: they nuance the action of the minister, they specify the hopes of the patron, they explain the discretion of the Christian. His ministry is also the song of the swan, in the modern age, the intense political and artistic dialogue maintained by France and the French with Italy since the end of the Middle Ages. Contemplating the face of Mazarin returned by the Italian mirror, is finally revisit the notions of identity and homeland in Europe of the seventeenth century. the intense political and artistic dialogue maintained by France and the French with Italy since the end of the Middle Ages.

  • "De Jules Mazarin (1602-1661), ses contemporains ont tout dit, sur le ton de l'emphase et de l'admiration aussi bien que sur le mode de la détestation et de la moquerie. Aujourd'hui, les historiens veulent en retenir la figure de l'homme d'État, les prouesses du politique, la patience du diplomate, la générosité du mécène et le goût du collectionneur. La réussite de l'homme qui fit venir en France presque toute sa famille, dont ses fameuses niéces, semble ainsi admirable. Pourtant, le personnage déroute dés qu'on le ramène sur les terres italiennes qui l'ont vu naître. Audacieux ou défait dans la négociation, pressé et déraisonnable dans l'action, gauche et passionné dans l'expression, Mazarin, dans ses rapports avec Rome et avec l'Italie, n'est pas toujours celui que l'on attend. Questionner les liens de Mazarin avec l'Italie du Seicento permet de mieux comprendre l'homme : ils nuancent l'action du ministre, ils précisent les espoirs du mécène, ils expliquent la discrétion du chrétien. Son ministériat constitue aussi le chant du cygne, à l'âge moderne, de l'intense dialogue politique et artistique entretenu par la France et les Français avec l'Italie depuis la fin du Moyen Âge. Contempler le visage de Mazarin renvoyé par le miroir italien, c'est enfin revisiter les notions d'identité et de patrie dans l'Europe du XVIIe siècle."--
