Obstacles to Italian Unity
  • What were some of the early obstacles that
    Italian Nationalists faced before uniting?

    seek to create one, free, independent, republican
    nation known as Italy
  • Create a strong Nationalist group that would
    orchestrate unification of Italian people from
    different regions

4
Obstacles to Italian Unity
  • Why did Italian Nationalists want a unified
    Italy?
  • Made sense because of geography
  • Would help economically, especially because it
    would end trade barriers and stimulate industry
  • Italians shared a common language and history
  • To return to the glories of ancient Rome

    (Italian Nationalist Movement)?

    practiced realpolitik
  • Reformed Sardinias economy, improved
    agriculture, industry, and trade

    Risorgimento (Italian Nationalist Movement)?
  • Longtime Italian Nationalist, recruited a
    military force of 1,000 Red Shirts

Challenges Facing the New Nation
  • What divisions existed in Italy after the country
    unified?
  • The North was considerably wealthier than the
    South
  • Regional rivalries made political decisions
    difficult
  • Hostility existed between Italy and the Roman
    Catholic Church

8
Challenges Facing the New Nation
  • How was the new Italian state constructed
    politically, and what problems did this pose?
  • Constitutional monarchy with a two-house
    legislature
  • The King apponted members of the upper house and
    had veto power over the elected, lower house.
    This gave the monarchy the power
  • Radicals challenged the new Italian government
    for further reform, even suffrage

Challenges Facing the New Nation
  • How did Italians progress economically after they
    formed their one, unified state?
  • Industries started to flourish in the north,
    bringing factories, cities, and thus,
    urbanization
  • Reformers sought improved education and working
    conditions
  • Italians were granted the right of emigration,
    or to exit the country and leave for other
    countries such as the United States, Canada, etc.
