Thanks for all of the recommendations, guys, I appreciate the effort. Unfortunately I only speak English so I can't read many - if any at all - of the books I've been recommended. I understand that it's sort of my own fault for asking about a relatively specific topic of regional history, though.

There were two kinds of Spanish Dominions in Italy: one territories belonged to the Crown as Sicily, Naples, Milanesado, Sardinia, States of Presidios in Tuscany etc othes were independent.. but a kind of Spanish protectorate on themw as Genoa (And in some time, Rome)... in fact, I think only Venice was free from the Spanish control.

The Spanish Control in Italy was also a Italian Control on Italy! That is the reason because The Spanish Dominions in Italy were intact at the beginning of the 18th century ...whilst in Low Countries took place a slow.. a slow, very slow loss of territories in the seventeenth century. Italian dominions continued in the Crown throughout the seventeenth century, without significant losses.

"In Italia, in particolare, le posizione spagnoli apparivano inttate". (In Italy, the Spanish dominions were intact)... (Galasso writing about the Spanish Dominions in Italy in 1701 when Charles II died)...

Spain was able to resist the French attacks during 17th Century in better condictions that in Flanders. And In 1690 in Lombardy they won one of the last Tercios Victories..

For Italy, try this because it is exactly what you want

Spain in Italy

There're lot of more specific papers, particularly about Spanish Naples, like this

https://warwick.ac.uk/fac/arts/hist...e/the_place_of_naples_in_the_17th-century.pdf

http://historyweb.ucsd.edu/_files/news/marino-john/Marino in Astarita Companion.Final.2013.pdf


In the case of the Netherlands, the issue is heavily intermigled, of course, with the Eighty Years War. In this case, start here History of the Low Countries chapters 3.3 and 5

A comprehensive study of the EYW can be found in Geophrey Parker The Dutch Revolt

If you want to know the Spanisy Army in the Netherlands, of course Parker again with his classic The Army of Flanders and the Spanish Road, 1567-1659


In the case of Portugal, I recommend this work a lot for Portuguese Asia Portuguese Trade in Asia Under the Habsburgs, 1580–1640

For global view of the Spanish Empire, John Elliott Imperial Spain 1469-1716


Finding something about the Franche-Comté in English, I fear that's almost impossible
