ITALIAN UNIFICATION

Austrias intervention considerable hindered and slowed the process - great obstacle towards Italian unification

Metternich wanted Italy to be kept as a handful of seperate states, to increase Austri's domiance 'wanted to extinguish spirit of national unity'

1820-49 revolutions - e.g. Charled Albert and Battles of Custoza 1848 and Novara 1849 - highlighted Austria were too powerful for Italy to defeat alone

It was only after the Austria were defeated in 1860 that Italy could be united - Without the obstacle of Italy the unification process may have been much quicker

Garibaldi agreed to hand over all his territories he controlled - S. and C. Italy now under control of Kingdom of Piedmont - Meeting of Teano reulted in the Procalmation of the Kingdom of Italy in 1861 under rule of Victor Emmanuel II

ACCORDING TO GARIBALDI ITALIAN UNIFICATION COULD ONLY COME ABOUT BY WHAT MEANS?

7 of 8

ITALIAN UNIFICATION

To release Southern Italy form foreign ruler, without being reliant on foreign influence

he was unexpectedly successful in taking control of Sicily and Naples

By agreeing to hand over his territories Garibaldi laid the way clear for Cavour and Piedmont to take over Italy - Kingdom of Italy

Garibaldi was a true disciple to the cause of unifying the whole of Italy - Cavour only interested in increasing Piedmonts power by unifying N.Italy - Covour was more pragamtic and stopped Garibaldis plans of invading Rome that may have led to an armed intervention with France

Unification could only come about by revolutionary means and armed force, without this belief the process may have been much more laborious
