Example text

Key date Another possible leader was suggested by the Piedmontese writer Vincenzo Gioberti. In 1843 he suggested that, as the Pope and the Catholic Church were the glories of Italy, the Italian states should form themselves into a federation with the Pope as its president. His book, On the Moral and Civil Primacy of the Italians, sold 5000 copies, but the bad reputation of the Papal States as oppressive and corrupt seemed too great a stumbling block for his ideas to be put into operation. However, the situation changed in 1846 with the election of a new Pope, Pius IX, who was believed to have liberal sympathies.

Italia fara da se’ (‘Italy will make herself by herself ’) he famously insisted in the 1840s. Perhaps this was his wish all along. Yet this interpretation is not very convincing, since several of his actions after 1831, for instance his alliance with Austria, were reactionary. Part of the answer must lie in Charles Albert’s own complicated character. Many described him as secretive and unsociable, seldom showing any emotion, and some have believed him out of touch with reality. His attraction to the more mystical aspects of Catholicism, and his habit of wearing a hair shirt, are not necessarily signs of mental imbalance.

No wonder moderate liberals in the 1840s looked upon him as dangerous. How could they attract the support of France, while he called for all foreign nations to stand aside from Italian affairs? How could they generate support from wealthy figures, while he wished to see a redistribution of wealth? How could they appeal to individual Italian rulers, while his ideal was republicanism? Mazzini might on occasions appeal for the support of particular rulers, but the ambivalence of his thought on this issue must surely have made them wary.
