The (Latest) UNIFICATION Of Italy Was Proclaimed This Day, 156-Years Ago — March 17, 1861

hjby Anura Guruge



The Proclamation was by the First Italian Parliament, meeting in Turin. The Parliament had been assembled by Victor Emmanuel.

On March 17, 1861, this Parliament proclaimed that Italy was once again UNITED and that Victor Emmanuel would be the new King of Italy.

It took ANOTHER 10-days before Rome was declared the capital of Italy — since they had to placate a very irate pope!
