The Italian Unification occurred between 1859 and 1870. In the year of 1859, France and Austria went to war. This destabilized Italy and allowed many states to vote to merge with Piedmont. Then in 1860 Garibeldi led a force of volunteers, the red shirts, to the conquest of Naples and Sicily. It was in this situation that he then gave them to Victor Emanuel II of Piedmont, who then ruled most of Italy. This meant that he was crowned King of Italy by a brand new Italian parliament on March 17th in 1861. Venetia and Venice was then gained from Austria in 1866, and the last of the surviving Papal States were annexed later in 1870. Italy then became a unified state.

Then there was the World War of 1915. Even though Italy was allied with Germany, and Austria-Hungary, the nature of the way they entered that war allowed Italy to remain as a neutral state. This stayed true until worried concerning missing out on gains as well as the secret Treat of London with Russia, Britain and France, meant that Italy became heavily involved with the war. This opened a completely new front. The failures and the strains of the war then meant that Italian cohesion was pushed to the limit, and the socialists were blamed for most of the problems that occurred. It was when the war was over in 1918, that Italy walked out of the peace conference over their treatment by their allies. There was also anger at what was considered as a deficient settlement.

Of course, Mussolini gaining power in 1922 was also another huge event in Italy. Groups of fascists formed in post-war Italy, partly in the response to the growing success of socialism and the ever-weakening central government.
