Today we're continuing to discuss a pivotal moment in Italian history: the Risorgimento. This was a period of political and social revolution that ultimately led to the unification of Italy as a single nation-state. One event that occurred during the Risorgimento was Italy's attempt to build an empire in Ethiopia. In 1896, Italy invaded Ethiopia in an effort to expand its territory and influence, but they were met with fierce resistance and ultimately suffered a devastating defeat. This was a major blow to Italy's imperial ambitions and marked the end of their attempts to colonize Ethiopia. Despite this setback, Italy continued to try and build an empire, but they were met with repeated failure. These attempts were marked by military defeats and diplomatic failures, which ultimately led to the country's decline as a major power. The Risorgimento was an important period in Italian history that led to the country's unification, but it also highlighted Italy's failed attempts to build an empire.
