Abstract

he expansion of the commerce of the Kingdom of Naples in the Levant between the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries was undermined by the continuing war situation between the Spanish monarchy and the Ottoman Empire, together with the barbarian states. At the beginning of the eighteenth century the situation slowly began to change, especially when the Austrian Empire conquered the Kingdom of Naples, in 1707, inserting it into an international commercial circuit. But the trades, according to the mercantilistic theories pursued by the Austrians, could be carried out only through pacts of friendship and non aggression with the barbaric powers. Therefore, precisely following the stipulation of these treaties, the commercial relations between the Neapolitan viceroyalty and the Ottoman empire and the barbarian states intensified, as witnessed also in the dispatches of the Venetian residents in Naples. And also Charles of Bourbon, who became king of Naples in 1734, continued the Austrian policy, stipulating in turn trade treaties with the Ottoman Empire and the Barbaric States, in order to ensure a thriving trade in the East.
