Episode 19 – The completion of Italy and her on-going problems

3641994250_177e7f6bea_mToday’s podcast is the final one in our series about Italian unification. As we saw in the last podcast the first 10 years of a united Italy after 1860 saw the new state go through severe birth pains. In the last podcast we looked at:

  • Continuing differences between North and South;
  • The problems caused by “Piedmontisation”; and
  • The Brigand’s war;

In today’s podcast we’ll focus on:

  • The disillusionment of the radicals and democrats after 1860;
  • The attitude of the Catholic Church to the new state; and
  • The effect of the death of Cavour.
