One of the contexts in which the capacity of the Spanish monarchy to control the territory was traditionally put to the hardest test was certainly that of the border areas, which by their very nature constituted more easily a place of presence of elements of alteration of public order. The struggle that at the beginning of the 1690s (nineties of the seventeenth century) led against the banditry Marco Garofalo marquis of Rocca, head of the military garrisons of the provinces of Abruzzo on the northern borders of the Kingdom of Naples, in an area bordering the State of the Church, is an example of the ability of the monarchy ministers to dynamize all the means at their disposal to achieve control over the territory, accompanying the use of force with the exercise of diplomacy.

Keywords: Marco Garofalo marquis of Rocca, Abruzzo, Kingdom of Naples, Spanish Monarchy, Banditry, Defense of the borders.
