In this episode we will delve into the complex and often tumultuous history of the Italian unification movement. In this episode, we will be discussing the role of the Papacy as reactionaries during the Risorgimento and its impact on the movement. We will also delve into the phenomenon of Brigandage, a form of organized crime that plagued Italy during this time, and the massive emigration from Italy due to extreme poverty and conflict between regions, classes, and cultures. The Papacy, under Pope Pius IX, was a significant obstacle to the Risorgimento movement. The Pope and the Catholic Church were deeply conservative and opposed to the liberal and nationalist ideals of the Risorgimento. They saw it as a threat to their power and influence in Italian society. This resistance led to a series of conflicts between the Papacy and the Italian government, including the Capture of Rome in 1870, which marked the end of the Papal States and the beginning of the unification of Italy. The poverty and conflict during the Risorgimento also led to a massive emigration from Italy. Millions of Italians left the country in search of better opportunities abroad, particularly in the United States. This emigration had a significant impact on the country, both socially and economically, and is still felt to this day. #Risorgimento #ItalianUnification #Papacy #Brigandage #Emigration #Poverty #Conflict #Regions #Classes #Cultures Today’s Guest: Joseph Pascone, Host of Turning Tides Podcast https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/turning-tides/id1653316649 You can learn more about the History of Papacy and subscribe at all these great places: http://atozhistorypage.com/ https://www.historyofthepapacypodcast.com email: steve@atozhistorypage.com https://www.patreon.com/historyofthepapacy parthenonpodcast.com https://www.gettr.com/user/atozhistory Beyond the Big Screen: Beyondthebigscreen.com The History of the Papacy on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC6DO2leym3kizBHW0ZWl-nA Get Your History of the Papacy Podcast Products Here: https://www.atozhistorypage.com/products Help out the show by ordering these books from Amazon! https://smile.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/1MUPNYEU65NTF Music Provided by: "Sonatina in C Minor" Kevin MacLeod (incompetech.com) "Funeral March for Brass" Kevin MacLeod (incompetech.com) "String Impromptu Number 1" Kevin MacLeod (incompetech.com) "Intended Force" Kevin MacLeod (incompetech.com) Agnus Dei X - Bitter Suite Kevin MacLeaod (incomptech.com) Licensed under Creative Commons: By Attribution 3.0 License
