Il Risorgimento

Il Risorgimento, "The Resurgance" in Italian, was a liberal, nationalist newspaper founded by Count Camillo Benso di Cavour in 1847. As editor of the newspaper, Cavour gained a great degree of influence in Sardinian politics, which paved his way towards entering the government and engineering Italian unification.

After the unification of Italy, the term "risorgimento" came to refer to the process of unification itself.
