Abstract

The Risorgimento was in the middle of major changes that led the birth of the modern world. From the beginning of the Bonapartist domination up to Porta Pia breach, the unification process was strictly intertwined with the current events in the Atlantic space, moving men, ideas and projects between the Old Continent and the New World. In the face of the order established by the Congress of Vienna, Italian patriots represented one of the main threats for the balances of Restoration. The assumption of this article focuses, using a longue durée perspective, on the experience of the three generations – Napoleonic veterans, liberal and republican exiles, garibaldini volunteers – who carried on the revolutionary struggle (from the pre-unitary states and abroad), in order to rethink the phenomenon of the Risorgimento patriotism in an Atlantic dimension and to show its closed connections with the global dynamics that marked out the developments of the 19th century modernity.
