The Westchester Italian Cultural Center Presents
Italian Unification: Cavour, Mazzini, Garibaldi.
Friday, September 19, 2014 at 7:00pm
In this lecture, Professor Louis Leonini will take us back in time to examine how Italy was actually unified. He will examine the role of the three major players in the unification, namely Giuseppe Mazzini, Count Camillo di Cavour, and Giuseppe Garibaldi. The lecture will seek to discover if these three men worked together to bring about this unification, or, the more controversial view that they did not actually work together, and at times were in open conflict. This raises the question of how in fact did Italian unification take place if these major figures were not working together! Many historians in Italy today, on the occasion of the 150th anniversary of Italian unity, are debating this issue openly, and this lecture is intended to clarify this debate so that we can understand more fully how the nation of Italy was born, and why this debate continues.
