Audiobooks Genres



Camillo Benso, Count of Cavour (1810-1861) was an Italian statesman and a leading figure in the movement for Italian unification. A nobleman born in Turin, Cavour founded the political newspaper "Il Risorgimento." An ardent admirer of Britain's constitution monarchy, with whose statesmen he forged strong diplomatic ties, he rose to become prime minister of Piedmont-Sardinia under King Victor Emmanuel II. By skillful maneuvering, Cavour enlisted the military support of Emperor Napoleon III of France in freeing the Italian states from Austrian tyranny, and in an uneasy alliance with the military leader Giuseppe Garibaldi, he forged the modern Italian state. - Summary by Pamela Nagami, M.D.
