Title : La contessa Adelaide e la società del secolo XI: Susa, 14-16 novembre 1991 [Olderico Manfredi had only one heir, his daughter Adelaide; he vested his property in her but permitted the Marquisate of Susa to pass to her successive husbands; she maintained her family's power against the ambitions of the House of Savoy which did not obtain control of the Val di Susa until the twelfth century; Adelaide even resisted the Gregorian Reform in order to keep control of the local churches].
