Historical Significance: factors of unification
"For a road map of the Risorgimento, we need to consider that the unitary system that emerged by 1861 was a product of a conscious choice - that is other constitutional alternatives were rejected or were no longer feasible..." (Filippo Sabetti)

Ferdinando II

disturbance down?

abdicates in Turin after popular uprising and military mutiny
Meanwhile... back in Piedmont (Sardinia),
