The Italian unification.Ricasoli and administrative centralization

Faraci E.G.
PhD, Researcher at the Department of Political Science and Social Sciences, Università degli Studi di Catania, Catania, Italy

In this essay the author examines two questions, which help to understand the political and institutional choices of the Tuscan statesman. The first issue concerns Ricasoli’s move to a favourable position on centralization, which became apparent during the parliamentary debate on Minghetti's project for decentralization. The second question focuses on the centralist measures adopted by the first Ricasoli government, after Cavour's sudden death. According to the author's hypothesis, those choices were made not only by the Tuscan statesman, but also by the council of ministers as a whole, together with the moderate majority of the ruling classes, and not only by these two groups.

Keywords: Historiography, administrative decentralization, political and institutional choices, Tuscan statesman
