On February 9, 1849, Giuseppe Mazzini proclaimed the downfall of the temporal power of Pope and established the Republic in Rome. Half a century earlier, the French revolutionaries had sown the seeds of Italian democracy and nationalism. The bourgeois and intellectuals under the influence of romanticism, exalted to the theater and opera, with their Belgian counterparts. They were dreaming about the political unity of the peninsula. The lawyer of the Giuseppe Mazzini was one of them. Born in Genoa in 1805, this romantic plotting of the Carbonari, led to a secret society being born in the kingdom of Naples at the time of the French occupation. After several unsuccessful uprisings of the "Carbonari" in 1821 and 1831, due to lack of popular support, Giuseppe Mazzini fled to Marseille where he founded his own movement called the Young Italy. His program was simple: unity in the Republic, with a motto of "God and Liberty." However, his attempts to uplift did not perform better than the previous cases, despite the support of Giuseppe Garibaldi.
