For over half a century, the late Rosario Villari deeply marked the debates about the Spanish Viceroyalty in Naples during the Early Modern period. His work in fact helped to better understand both the general history of the Hispanic Monarchy and the particular one of the Kingdom of Naples. This article aims to review the main contributions by Villari to the current debate on the Spanish viceroys in Naples, with very special attention to Osuna (1616-1620) and Medina de las Torres (1637-1644). The action of viceroys is considered in terms of political struggle, noble learning, viceregal majesty on display, and personal and community memoirs between Madrid and Naples.
