 Camillo Benso, conte di Cavour - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Camillo Benso, conte di Cavour (or Camillo di Cavour; August 10, 1810 – June 6, 1861) was an Italian statesman and a leading figure in the movement toward Italian unification.
Cavour began to dream of a united Italy, free of foreign control, and was therefore in favor of the war to come with Austria as news of the uprising in Milan came to Turin.
Cavour was theoretically the perfect man for the eventual job of Prime Minister of an Italian monarchy, being generally liberal and believing in free trade, public right of opinion, and secular rule, but still an enemy of the republicans and revolutionaries inside Piedmont, balancing their needs skillfully.

L'improvvisa decisione presa da Napoleone III di ritirarsi dal conflitto, che condusse all'armistizio di Villafranca (11 luglio 1859) tra Austria e Francia, provocò la reazione di Cavour, che si dimise da presidente del Consiglio.

Quando essa sarà costituita e forte, dimenticherà certamente i funesti eccessi, di cui alcune popolazioni polacche si resero colpevoli in un momento di delirio, per ricordarsi solo degli imprescrittibili ed irrefregabili titoli di quella infelice e magnanima nazione alle simpatie dei popoli europei, di quei della Germania in particolare.
