From Mazzini to Garibaldi:
Italian Risorgimento and Irish Nationalism
In 1958 the Italian Cultural Institute in Dublin held three conferences dedicated to the Irish perception of the the Italian Risorgimento. The conference’s papers were later published under the title Ireland and the Italian Risorgimento, along with the volume Daniel O'Connell, Proceedings of the Conference of studies in the 140th anniversary of his death, (edited by Leo Morabito, Genova, Istituto Mazziniano, 1990), represented until 2005 the main historiographic reference on the subject. The undeserved attention to this issue was resumed after 2005 by the articles of Jennifer O'Brien, Colin Barr, Michele Finelli, Rosita Copioli, Anne O'Connor, and Ciaran O'Carroll, who had also attended the International Conference Paul Cullen & His World, held in two sessions between Dublin and Rome in September and October 2009. The program is enriched and complemented by Giuseppe Monsagrati, Roland Sarti, Mario Di Napoli, Emanuela Minuto, Alberto Belletti, Mary Jane Cryan, Pádraig Ó Snodaigh, Emer Delaney.
It was the liveliness of recent years to inspire the organization of this International Conference in Dublin, with the aim of drawing a first review of historiography and encouraging the birth of a “study group” that in the future could work to this issue. The response of the participants has been positive, that the Conference got the vital encouragement and support from the Embassy of Italy in Dublin, Trinity College and Trinity Long Room Hub.
