ABSTRACT
This essay concern the European dimension of Cromwell's myth in the seventeenth century. It starts examining the writings which were published and circulated in the Italian states of the time, and then it compares Cromwell's representations among contemporary Italians with both English and European reputations of him. Finally, it aim to demonstrate how the prevailing seventeenth-century image of Cromwell as a machiavellian schemer relates both to the shared European heritage of tacitism and machiavellism, and to the capacity of the Lord Protector of embodying the prevailing conceptions of politics and statecraft of the time.
