  Irredentism - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Not all potential irredentas are involved in actual irredentism.
The word was coined in Italy from the phrase Italia irredenta ("unredeemed Italy").
In this view, irredenta conflict is a conflict between three parties: a nationalizing state, a national movement representing an ethnic minority within that state, and an external national homeland, to which that minority is construed as ethnically belonging.

 Italia irredenta - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Italia Irredenta (Unredeemed Italy) was an Italian patriotic and political faction, of importance in the late 19th century.
The Italians had hoped to share in the plunder of the Ottoman Empire, but they gained nothing, while Austria was endowed with the protectorate of Bosnia and Herzegovina, the vitally important hinterland of her possessions on the Adriatic.
In its final stages, the Italia Irredenta movement provided a way in which Italians who sympathized with French republicanism, and who disliked the monarchical governments of Central Europe, could agitate against their own government.

 irredentism - Encyclopedia.com
irredentism, originally, the Italian nationalist movement for the annexation to Italy of territories— Italia irredenta [unredeemed Italy]—inhabited by an Italian majority but retained by Austria after 1866.
The liberation of Italia irredenta was perhaps the strongest motive for the entry of Italy into World War I. The Treaty of Versailles (1919) satisfied most of the irredentist claims.
The term irredentism has, by extension, been applied to nationalist agitation in other countries, based on historical, ethnic, and geographical reasons, for the incorporation of territories under foreign rule.

Occasionally, Forza Italia has surpassed 30% of votes (as in the 1994 elections for the European parliament), but presently (as of 2005) its base of support consists of about one-fifth of the electorate.
"Forza Italia" used to be shouted at football matches as an encouragement for the national team ("Go on Italy"), but has since been dropped because of the obvious political implications of using the name of a major political party.
Forza Italia supporters call themselves "Azzurri", another clear reference to the national football team, but this is rarely used by others.
