List and briefly explain the obstacles to Italian unification. Since the time of the Roman Empire, Italy had been disunited; as a result, there was not a country called Italy; instead, it only existed on the map as geographical expression. In addition to this, Italy, with the exception of Sardinia, was also under the foreign rule of one of the great powers of Europe - Austria.
Because of division between the north of Italy and the south of Italy and failed attempts by Italian liberals to create an Italian state in the past, the Italian unification movement constantly faced a series of obstacles before completing the unification movement through policies and the element of luck. Most importantly, in addition to Italy being divided into eight states, Austria had played a major role in hindering Italian movements for unification. Austria was a multi-racial empire and in order to keep her country stable, Austria must suppress such movements calling for unification in the peninsula.
Although the anti-Austrian Piedmont-Sardinia attempted to unite the other Italian states in a war of liberation against Austria, Austria was able to defeat Piedmont-Sardinia because of its military inferiority.
Therefore, this event signaled the struggle of Italians to unify the country herself by military force. Consequently, Italy looked for an ally to combat the foreign rule of Austria. At first, France was interested in aiding the Sardinians because Austria was a traditional enemy of the French state and also Napoleon III looked for foreign military adventures in order to live up to his famous name. At this time, it seemed as if Italy had luck on her side as it could almost see the unification movement slowly succeeding on the horizon.
However, over the course of time, Napoleon decided to bring the conflict to a close because he was horrified by the high number of casualties from the conflict and the. The third obstacle for Italian unification was the disunity present in the peninsula itself.
Having different political views had made the unification movement more difficult. For instance, certain individuals, such as Mazzini and the Society of Young Italy, aimed to united Italy under a republic. While on the other hand, other Italians wanted to set up a constitutional government under the leadership of a monarch or a confederation of Italian states under the leadership of the pope.
Therefore, disunity among the Italians made it hard to complete the unification. Soon, Italians came to a realization in which the only way to unify the country, they must solve their different political views and cooperate together as a whole than in divisions. What role did each of the following have in the unification of Italy:.
Giuseppe Mazzini. Mazzini joined the secret nationalistic society of the Carbonari to oppose the monarch and founded Young Italy. At this time, Mazzini hoped that publicity and propaganda would create a revolutionary class; as a result, many of his writings argued that the overthrow of the Concert of Europe would lead to the founding of free, independent states based on linguistic and ethnic identity. For instance, he gave encouragement to Italian patriotism through.
Count Carmillo di Cavour. Count Carmillo di Cavour was, in fact, the true architect of Italian unification or the Risorgimento as he supported Liberal ideas and urged unification of Italy in his newspaper, Il Risorgimento. Cavour realized that creating an Italian state would require the expulsion of Austria from the Italian peninsula. Since the events in implied that succeeding in this expulsion would need the aid of some other European state, Cavour made a secret alliance with France by convincing Napoleon.
Cavour had. As a result of the war against Austrian rule, it helped inspire popular rebellions throughout the Italian peninsula.
Giuseppe Garibaldi. Subsequently, he met with Garibaldi in order to receive full control of southern Italy. With another series of plebiscites, it resulted in the proclamation of Vittorio Emmanuelo II as the first monarch of the unified Italy without Rome. He entered Rome and set up the new capital there.

For this reason, sometimes the period is extended to include the late 19th century and the First World War —until the 4 November Armistice of Villa Giustiwhich is considered the completion of unification.
This view is followed, for example, at the Central Museum of Risorgimento at the Vittoriano. Italy was unified by Rome in the third century BC. For years, it was a de facto territorial extension of the capital of the Roman Republic and Empireand for a long time experienced a privileged status and was not converted into a province. However, the emperor was an absentee German -speaking foreigner who had little concern for the governance of Italy as a state; as a result, Italy gradually developed into a system of city-states.
Southern Italy, however, was governed by the long-lasting Kingdom of Sicily or Kingdom of Napleswhich had been established by the Normans. Central Italy was governed by the Pope as a temporal kingdom known as the Papal States.
This situation persisted through the Renaissance but began to deteriorate with the rise of modern nation-states in the early modern period. Italy, including the Papal States, then became the site of proxy wars between the major powers, notably the Holy Roman Empire including AustriaSpainand France.
Harbingers of national unity appeared in the treaty of the Italic Leagueinand the 15th-century foreign policy of Cosimo De Medici and Lorenzo De Medici. Leading Renaissance Italian writers DantePetrarchBoccaccioMachiavelli and Guicciardini expressed opposition to foreign domination. Petrarch stated that the "ancient valour in Italian hearts is not yet dead" in Italia Mia.
Machiavelli later quoted four verses from Italia Mia in The Princewhich looked forward to a political leader who would unite Italy "to free her from the barbarians ". However, the Spanish branch of the Habsburg dynastyanother branch of which provided the Emperors, continued to rule most of Italy down to the War of the Spanish Succession — The Habsburg rule in Italy came to an end with the campaigns of the French Revolutionaries in —97, when a series of client republics were set up.
The Italian campaigns of the French Revolutionary Wars destroyed the old structures of feudalism in Italy and introduced modern ideas and efficient legal authority; it provided much of the intellectual force and social capital that fueled unification movements for decades after it collapsed in Beauharnais tried to get Austrian approval for his succession to the new Kingdom of Italy, and on 30 MarchMurat issued the Rimini Proclamationwhich called on Italians to revolt against their Austrian occupiers.
After Napoleon fell, the Congress of Vienna —15 restored the pre-Napoleonic patchwork of independent governments. Italy was again controlled largely by the Austrian Empire and the Habsburgs as they directly controlled the predominantly Italian-speaking northeastern part of Italy and were, together, the most powerful force against unification.
An important figure of this period was Francesco Melzi d'Erilserving as vice-president of the Napoleonic Italian Republic — and consistent supporter of the Italian unification ideals that would lead to the Italian Risorgimento shortly after his death. Published in and extensively revised in the following years, the version of I Promessi Sposi used a standardized version of the Tuscan dialecta conscious effort by the author to provide a language and force people to learn it. Exiles dreamed of unification.
Three ideals of unification appeared. Vincenzo Giobertia Piedmontese priest, had suggested a confederation of Italian states under leadership of the Pope in his book Of the Moral and Civil Primacy of the Italians.
Giuseppe Mazzini and Carlo Cattaneo wanted the unification of Italy under a federal republicwhich proved too extreme for most nationalists. The middle position was proposed by Cesare Balbo — as a confederation of separate Italian states led by Piedmont. One of the most influential revolutionary groups was the Carboneriaa secret political discussion group formed in Southern Italy early in the 19th century; the members were called Carbonari.

Despite a lack of consensus on the exact dates for the beginning and end of this period, many scholars agree that the process began in with the Congress of Vienna and the end of Napoleonic rule, and ended in with the Franco-Prussian War.
After the fall of the Western Roman EmpireItaly gradually developed into a system of city- states.Unification of Italy
This system lasted through the Renaissance but began to deteriorate with the rise of modern nation-states in the early modern period. Italy, including the Papal Statesthen became the site of proxy fights between the major powers, notably the Holy Roman Empire later Austria as well as Prussia and France.
In the s, Italian writers had expressed their opposition to foreign domination. For example, Petrarch ' s Italia Mia stated that the "ancient valor in Italian hearts is not yet dead. As Napoleon's reign began to fail, other national monarchs he had installed tried to keep their thrones by feeding nationalistic sentiments, setting the stage for the revolutions to come. De Beauharnais tried to get Austrian approval for his succession to the Kingdom of Italy. In March 30,Murat issued Rimini Proclamationwhich called on Italians to revolt against their Austrian occupiers.
Following the defeat of Napoleonic Francethe Congress of Vienna was convened to redraw the European continent. In Italy, the Congress restored the pre- Napoleonic patchwork of independent governments, either directly ruled or strongly influenced by the prevailing European powers, particularly Austria.
At the time, the struggle for Italian unification was perceived to be waged primarily against the Austrian Empire and the Habsburgssince they directly controlled the predominantly Italian- speaking northeastern part of present-day Italy and were, together, the most powerful force against unification. The Austrian Empire vigorously repressed nationalist sentiment growing on the Italian peninsula, as well as in the other parts of Habsburg domains.
The Austrian diplomat Klemens von Metternichan influential diplomat at the Congress of Vienna, stated that the word Italy was nothing more than "a geographic expression.
Artistic and literary sentiment also turned towards nationalism; and perhaps the most famous of proto-nationalist works was Alessandro Manzoni ' s I Promessi Sposi The Betrothed.
Some read. The novel was published in and extensively revised in the following years. The version of I Promessi Sposi used a standardized version of the Tuscan dialecta conscious effort by the author to provide a language and force people to learn it. Those in favour of unification also faced opposition from the Holy Seeparticularly after failed attempts to broker a confederation with the Papal Stateswhich would have left the Papacy with some measure of autonomy over the region.
The pope at the time, Pius IXfeared that giving up power in the region could mean the persecution of Italian Catholics. Even among those who wanted to see the peninsula unified into one country, different groups could not agree on what form a unified state would take. Vincenzo Giobertia Piedmontese priest, had suggested a confederation of Italian states under rulership of the Pope. His book, Of the Moral and Civil Primacy of the Italianswas published in and created a link between the Papacy and the Risorgimento.
Many leading revolutionaries wanted a republic, but eventually it was a king and his chief minister who had the power to unite the Italian states as a monarchy.

There were active Carbonari groups across Italy in the years after the restoration of They had significant numbers, estimated at 60' in Naples alone. However they were not coherent with a plan for Italy, they had ranging political views and were largely concerned with their local states.
Most wanted their Dukes to remain in Power but as constitutional rulers. Victor Emmanuel who was restored to Piedmont began to return things to pre-Napoleonic days: - Including destroying the parks and gas street lighting France had built.
In the papal states especially in the cities Ferrera and Bologna in the Romagna during French rule the clergy had been thrown out of important jobs with middle class professionals replacing them.
The Unification of Italy, 1815-70
When the Pope was restored he in turn sacked these professionals, this caused a lot of resentment especially in the Romagna. In the Kingdom of Naples and Sicily the absolute Bourbon King Ferdinand I brought back many of the powers of the Church hoping it would keep his subjects quiet.
The Vienna Settlement and restoration of autocratic rule did enormous damage to the fortunes and aspirations of the educated classes, professionals found they were pushed aside. Many became active opponents of the restoration and Austrian influence. The Kingdom of two Sicilies had extensive Carbonari membership. King Ferdinand was unpopular with the middle classes, having imposed high taxes, conscription and censorship of the press.
Sicily was also unhappy, it was not conquered by Napoleon and in King Ferdinand had issued a constitution which he went back on in being given the throne of Naples, ruling as an absolute monarch. In the Bourbon king of Spain had been forced by a revolution to grant a constitution, this was a spark: -In Naples many army officers decided to force King Ferdinand to do the same.
These rebels were joined by General Pepe and his troops. When News of the revolt in Naples reached the major powers, Austria called a 'congress which took place in at Troppau, where the 'Troppau protocol' was signed.
This was signed by Austria, Prussia and Russia and stated that the great powers should intervene to stop rebellions being successful.
This is what allowed Austria to crush the Naples rebellion of France did not sign because it was still unstable and Britain because wanted to 'maintain the balance of power'.
The Troppau protocol gave Austria an excuse to end a rebellion in Piedmont. A new king, Louis Philippe was installed in his place, he had a reputation as a liberal reformer. It was hoped by some in Italy that this might mean France would support attempts to change things in Italy. However, Louis was often too scared that Britain, France, Prussia or Austria might try to restore the Bourbons to the French throne so he couldn't afford to offend these powers by helping Italy.
Charles Albert became king of Piedmont-Sardinia, he showed himself to be a cautious reformer but one who didn't really want extensive change. His principle aim was to strengthen and expand his kingdom.
Francisco liked the sound of this but realised Austria would not stand for it. Modena which they referred to as a 'foreign city'. Like earlier revolts, those in the Romagna were localised; the ambition here was to create an independent state without any wider aims. Young Italy was a secret society, founded in by Mazzini, this orginisation had an impact on the political development of Italy.
There was a major outbreak of Cholera which had killed 65' people, many blamed Neapolitan rule for this disaster. Pius IX was elected as Pope in and at first was seen as a liberal Pope. Although it's powers were limited to many liberals it was the first step towards the elected parliament they wanted. As a result, many saw this new pope as being more liberal and had hopes that he would support change in Italy.
In like the other rulers of Italy Charles Albert was under pressure.
