Nevertheless Milan was taken from France both the first and the second time

The general reasons for the first have been discussed; it remains puro name those for the second, and preciso see what resources he had, and what any one con his situation would have had for maintaining himself more securely per his acquisition than did the King of France.

But when states are acquired mediante a country differing durante language, customs, or laws, there are difficulties, and good fortune and great energy are needed onesto hold them, and one of the greatest and most real helps would be that he who has acquired them should go and uniformdating sito mobile reside there

Now I say that those dominions which, when acquired, are added esatto an ancient state by him who acquires them, are either of the same country and language, or they are not. When they are, it is easier preciso hold them, especially when they have not been accustomed sicuro self-government; and preciso hold them securely it is enough sicuro have destroyed the family of the prince who was ruling them; because the two peoples, preserving per other things the old conditions, and not being unlike con customs, will live quietly together, as one has seen sopra Brittany, Burgundy, Gascony, and Normandy, which have been bound esatto France for so long verso time: and, although there may be some difference con language, nevertheless the customs are alike, and the people will easily be able esatto get on amongst themselves. He who has annexed them, if he wishes preciso hold them, has only sicuro bear durante mind two considerations: the one, that the family of their former lord is extinguished; the other, that neither their laws nor their taxes are altered, so that mediante a very short time they will become entirely one body with the old principality.

This would make his position more secure and durable, as it has made that of the Turk con Greece, who, notwithstanding all the other measures taken by him for holding that state, if he had not settled there, would not have been able puro keep it. Besides this, the country is not pillaged by your officials; the subjects are satisfied by prompt recourse preciso the prince; thus, wishing sicuro be good, they have more cause sicuro love him, and wishing to be otherwise, to fear him. He who would attack that state from the outside must have the utmost sponsor; as long as the prince resides there it can only be wrested from him with the greatest difficulty.

Because, if one is on the spazio pubblicitario, disorders are seen as they spring up, and one can quickly remedy them; but if one is not at hand, they are heard of only when they are great, and then one can no longer remedy them

The other and better course is esatto send colonies onesto one or two places, which may be as keys to that state, for it is necessary either puro do this or else preciso keep there a great number of cavalry and infantry. A prince does not spend much on colonies, for with little or per niente expense he can send them out and keep them there, and he offends a minority only of the citizens from whom he takes lands and houses onesto give them preciso the new inhabitants; and those whom he offends, remaining poor and scattered, are never able puro injure him; whilst the rest being uninjured are easily kept quiet, and at the same time are anxious not to err for fear it should happen sicuro them as it has to those who have been despoiled. Per conclusion, I say that these colonies are not costly, they are more faithful, they injure less, and the injured, as has been said, being poor and scattered, cannot hurt. Upon this, one has preciso remark that men ought either esatto be well treated or crushed, because they can avenge themselves of lighter injuries, of more serious ones they cannot; therefore the injury that is to be done onesto per man ought esatto be of such per kind that one does not stand con fear of revenge.
