1890-1916 Sergeiwitte (1849-1915) Cotton NSSE – survey about what your opinions are on this, have to be a senior or a freshman Unification of Italy, 1825, -Germany melded together through the endeavors of Bismarck and Prussia -Italy been together since Rome, Middle Age Italy was many city states -nationalism in Germany was a phenomenon of French nationalism -the French and Napoleon take-over Northern Italy for about 15 years -the French give northern Italy a centralized middle-state, northern ideas are melted into Italian culture -modern-day Italy is now one of the top economies in the world -the discussion of the unification of Italy (northern providence of Lombardy and Venetia are given, around 1915, to Austria) BEFORE THEIR NATIONALISM -Papal states in the middle, Sicily, capital in Naples (French and Bourbon rulers) -Piedmond Savoy – a local king, the ONLY local king in the Italian provinces -Treaty of Utrecht 1700 teens, people who became kings, Italian nationalism at the time of the 18 century is romanticized, “Risorgimento” – to look back to the “golden age” of the Roman Empire, humanism, “Renaissance” -this attempt to change the social pattern was sponsored by Joseph Mazzini (a local sponsor of holy, humble proportions) -1831, Secret Society of Young Italy, around Mazzini – however there is a question about who should be included in this discussion of the borderlines of the capital for Italy -during the uprisings, the king of Piedmont sent troupes into the areas of Lombardy and Piedmont, the Austrians overpower the King of Savoy, and thus Piedmont-Savoy becomes a more democratized republic with a representative legislature -in 1852, the King of Piedmont Savoy collects the help of Count Cavour (1810-61), an liberal-leaning aristocrat -Cavour wants to get rid of presently-militant Austrians, but he also does not want to lead to more unrest, rather he wants to have a new functioning cohesion of Italian states -after the 1840’s Cavour needs more alliances, so he goes over the Alps 1858 to the new Napoleon III, “boastful windbag” 1 what Napoleon III is doing on his own is being absolute over the masses’ private lives, he can take on a propagandist stance over the protection of the land, to the degree of the Pope -in 1859, the Austrians are tricked into fighting against Savoy again, and Napoleon brought his troops over to decimate them 1 Smith -Austrians are defeated, Italian nationalism ensues, Napoleon signs a separate peace treaty with the Austrians (worried about Prussian invasion via the Rhine River, Catholic reaction in France (as he was exerting his dominance over the Catholic Pope), the Austrians keep Venetia, then, by 1860, most of Italy has gone with Savoy, Lombardy to unity -leaves Papal States, Sicily Kingdom -what Napoleon does is leave some troops in the Papal States to protect the Pope 2 -Giuseppe Garibaldi, “revolutionary, republic nationalist” -plans to attack and overthrow the royalty in the Sicilys, “fight of the red shirts”, cross over the straights of Italy, bring all their armies to the king to defeat him, have fallen to Garibaldi -Garibaldi wants to overthrow this area and create a segment of Southern Italy, Cavour decides he will have to pick unification over preference -Victor Emmanuel II, 1861 – King of Savoy, constitutional monarchy, northeast Venetia now bellows to Savoy, making an Italian kingdom in 1866, except for the Papal States – Treaty of this area called Venetia -Napoleon’s troops are still standing by, guarding the Pope -when the Prussians invade Rome, Italy moves out of France in influence and Napoleon loses interest in Italy -relationship between the secular Italian territories and the Papal States (9 th century date of autonomy) -finally the Vatican City is created in 1929, by definition an officially- autonomous state -long before this, there is many problems associated with the north that the south does not experience – Industrialization (Milan, Genoa, Turin), northerners still look down on the southerners as rural folks -North is an industrial monarchy -1860’s the voting population is a very small percentage of men, 1882 – about 2 million men, 1913 – about 4 million men (not until after WWII, does Italy know full-democracy), Parliament is not entirely effective -not an Italian consensus as to one language (many different kinds of smaller, regional languages), (French, England … go back about a hundred years), Dictionary invented in the Enlightenment to no mistake in history -spelled a word many different ways in this time, didn’t matter what he did at each time, because unification was not necessary for the translation of ideas -the Industrialization Process is exponential in growth almost, yet much poverty and conservatism that leads to an odd blend of industrial revolution, labor unrest (rights??), Italian politics are not quite effective with about a dozen political parties varying with each meeting -starts to begin to appear geographically as it does in modern-day 2 Ibid. -Russia, serfdom – local rich forcibly make serfs pay rent, provide labor, all in exchange for perhaps about 20-30 acres to create a sustainable and co- dependent relationship -the practice of having serfs in Europe, even western Germany, but not in Eastern Europe and Russia -where are the options to run ? to marry ? to take up a craft/practice ? -the ‘Lord’ would receive the riches of this labor, then much of this would be allocated to the CZAR -1858 – no more serfs in Austria and Prussia, abolitionism was a slow process, (58% of the Russians were tied-up in serfdom), so how was this process to be expedited????? -Slavophiles wanted to the practice of having serfs, but remain in traditional Russian structures of towns (Mir- Slav. Villages), not feeling modernization vs. -Westernizers, they wanted to end serfdom but in a way that would garner the approval of Western science, unification, liberal and unified ideas -consensus of the necessity of serfdom’s eradication was spread -What land to support serfs????, Russians Crimean War defeat is a signaling defeat -Czar Alexander II, 1855-1881, is hoping to rid of this system by 1856 -realistically, this does not happen until 1861 -this plan was not fully established as the status quo, many people still lived in serf-like conditions -22 million people stopped their serf titles and lifelong lifestyles, the landowners/Lords gave up some land, after a land-assessment of optimistic proportions, Lords/Rich usually gave up the worst of it – state compensation -land is actually given to the “village leader”/richest peasant in the neighborhood/Mir -once-serfs give money to the local government, but this land was awful quality, with a lack of payment, order – might as well rejoin a serf-like structure -15-year period -peasants are upset because they are given awful land-quality to grow, peasants believe the land had all been reallocated to the Czar, conspiracy of an unfair disadvantage -marks the transition to industrialization that took place in Russia, near the mid-end of the 19 century), Vladivostok and Moscow were to be connected by Trans-Siberian Railroad (1890-1916), early-Russian architecture designed by industrialist visionary, Sergeiwitte, center of industrialization is essentially Moscow, Vladivostok -cotton demanded (from central Asia), build another railroad called the Trans- Caspian Railway -at the beginning of WWI, not much industrialization has occurred in most, if not all, parts of Russia (industrialized warfare that destroys them)
