Resumen: This article tries to show that the power of princely virtù as conceived by Machiavelli turns its possessor into a demi-god in the human world. Indeed, he who has virtù is not only able to restore and preserve the public order but, as he does so, also unifies the political problems of acquiring and maintaining power, turning the human world into an artifice within the natural world and humanising history. In other words: he completely defeats the power of fortuna. However, this omnipotence is not total: in the natural world, it has only very mitigated effects; and, within the human sphere, virtù declares itself impotent in the face of liberty: once freedom has been tasted, not even the most skilful of princes or the greatest promises of wellbeing can persuade citizens voluntarily to part with it.
