  Risorgimento. The Columbia Encyclopedia, Sixth Edition. 2001-05
The Risorgimento was primarily a movement of the middle class and the nobility; since economic issues were virtually ignored, the peasantry remained indifferent to its ideals.
Sardinia assumed the leadership of the Risorgimento in 1848 when the Lombardo-Venetian kingdom rose against Austrian rule and King Charles Albert intervened in favor of the rebels.
The remaining territorial objectives of the Risorgimento were Venetia, still in Austria’s possession, and Rome and Latium, which the pope was able to retain because of French protection.

 Myth & Reality in the Risorgimento - Dr Bruce Haddock
In the case of dramatic events such as the Italian Risorgimento, where the semblance of a modern state was created out of disparate and unlikely materials in the course of a couple of decades, it is by no means clear what would be left after layers of political illusion had been peeled away.
Nor is it simply the case that the significance of what was happening at the time was contested by contemporaries; subsequent generations have sought to revise their views of what was at stake in the light both of their own experience and the availability of documentary evidence.
In effect, the history of the Risorgimento was rewritten by the victors in the 1860s, leaving controversial thinkers to be castigated or ignored.

 Il Museo del Risorgimento
This monument-which was inaugurated in 1911-would have housed the Central Museum of the Risorgimento, destined to gather the testimonies of the political, economical, and social transformation of Italy during the 18th, 19th and 20th centuries.
The gallery is divided into single sections pivoting on the major stages of the Risorgimento struggles: from the Restoration, which followed the fall of Napoleon, to 1848; from the Roman Republic set up in 1849 to the exploits of the Thousand (1860), to the rejoining of Rome to Italy (1870).
At the same time, along the gallery, a parallel and complementary route aims at illustrating particular historical "themes": the Civic Guard, the brigandage, the political satire, the historical depiction techniques during the 19th century (from drawings to photography), the relics, the Italian Flag, the coins and medals.

 Gabaccia and Ottanelli/Italian Workers of the World. Chapter 1
Most nationalists of the Risorgimento came from bourgeois backgrounds, although a large minority (about 15 percent) was made up of downwardly mobile sons of the lesser aristocracy or upwardly mobile sons of the petty merchants and artisans in the large cities.
Because the Risorgimento exiles were articulate and bourgeois, their political lives in Italy and abroad are easier to document than the lives of the radical activists of humbler origin during later mass migrations.
The long-term legacy of the Risorgimento was an Italian state without a secure or a united nation to support it and a worldwide scattering of Italian citizens uninterested in creating a coherent diaspora nationalism like that of Jews, Greeks, or Poles, with their clear focus on change in the homeland.

 Il Museo del Risorgimento
Nel monumento - che venne inaugurato nel 1911- avrebbe dovuto collocarsi anche il Museo Centrale del risorgimento, destinato a raccogliere le testimonianze relative alla trasformazione politica, economica e sociale dell'Italia nei secoli XVIII, XIX e XX.
Il percorso espositivo ora proposto ripercorre le tappe fondamentali della storia d'Italia, dalle riforme dei vari Stati della penisola nella seconda metà del Settecento alla conclusione della prima guerra mondiale, mediante testimonianze di vario genere che si prestano a diverse chiavi di lettura.
Lungo la scalinata d'accesso al Museo sono state collocate numerose incisioni che illustrano i momenti preparatori del Risorgimento, dalla diffusione degli ideali della rivoluzione francese alle rievocazioni delle delle imprese napoleoniche: si tratta, in genere, di raffigurazioni simboliche che riprendono, a volte, dei temi dell'antichità classica e li trasformano in allegorie della storia moderna.

 H-Net Review: Jan Marten Ivo Klaver on The Risorgimento and the Unification of Italy
In conformity with the other titles in the series, Beales's essay was merely entitled "Introduction." In seven short sections Beales traced the history of the Risorgimento and its repercussions on notions of unity, starting from the period 1748-1815.
Likewise, the authors have little sympathy for the recent revisionism of Roberto Martucci, whom they see as advancing a whole series of "conspiracy theories," which argue that the whole process of unification was masterminded by Cavour, who, with Garibaldi as a puppet in his hands, controlled events from the start through the Piedmontese intelligence service.
In the chapter "Women and the Risorgimento," the book offers interesting new insights showing that women's political horizons were not limited to the home.

 Pound's Quest for the Paradiso
Pound explains, "A Risorgimento implies a whole volley of liberations, liberations from ideas, from stupidities, from conditions and from tyrannies of wealth or army" (112).
But just as Benjamin's notion of destruction doesn't mean a destruction of the past, Pound's risorgimento and its "liberations" imply not a "reborn/newly-born" ideal, not a "renaissance", but a "renewal", an awakening which, instead of severing ties to the past, reawakens the past into the present.
In "The State" (1927), Pound lays out a grid of items, rating them according to their ability to be "'consumed' but not destroyed by consumption" (1973: 215); he labels "well-constructed buildings" as "durable," but he labels "works of art" as "permanent," and as Bernstein shows us, Pound valued poetry more than any other art.

 Elizabeth Barrett Browning, Italian independence, and the `critical reaction' of Henry James
As one might have guessed, the ongoing restoration of Barrett Browning has focused much of its energies on the political content of her verse, explaining her devotion to the Italian Risorgimento as an enactment, in part, of her own struggle for psychological and artistic wholeness and coherence.
It might seem revealing that, of all the figures of the Risorgimento, James writes at length only of the one who was "the model of the moderate and conservative liberal," whose "liberalism was untinged by the radical leaven" (LC, 2:557), and who "often said...
It is on this basis that the Storys are tacitly differentiated from the more viscerally affected Barrett Browning; and James's habit of endowing the Storys with some of his own most recognizable inclinations becomes a leading pattern of the biography, implicating its protagonists in a pervasive theatricalization of their Italian milieu.

Il funzionamento effettivo del Comitato fu però a partire dal 1907, dopo che alcuni esponenti dell'establishment politico-nobiliare-militare torinese avevano fatta propria la proposta di costituire una "Società nazionale per la storia del Risorgimento italiano" emersa dal primo congresso di storia del Risorgimento svoltosi a Milano nel 1906.
Lo scoppio della guerra determinò tuttavia una subitanea conversione dal filone erudito-filologico, ispirato al metodo storico di ascendenza positivistica, alle attività propagandistiche, in linea con le scelte degli altri istituti intitolati al Risorgimento, pronti a presentare e legittimare il conflitto come "ultima guerra di indipendenza".
Il graduale venir meno della centralità del Risorgimento nel dibattito politico innescò effetti positivi sul piano scientifico, dove si fece strada un approccio meno soggetto alle spinte ideologiche, caratterizzato da uno sforzo di rinnovamento nelle tematiche e nelle metodologie di lavoro.
