In this episode of the podcast, we delve into the history of Italy during the Risorgimento period, which saw the country undergo a period of modernization and national unification in the 19th century. We also explore the role of the irredentists, a group of political activists who sought to reclaim territories they believed were historically Italian. Throughout the episode, we discuss the challenges faced by the country during this time period, including poverty that existed at a Mesolithic level. We also examine the ways in which these challenges were addressed and ultimately overcome through the efforts of political leaders and activists. #Risorgimento #ItalianUnification #Irredentism #Modernization #Poverty #Mesolithic #ItalianHistory 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
