To give proof of this its definition, It is now to get out, Mei, un libro che porterÃ veritÃ sulla “Union” del veneto all’Italia (I Venetian in lowercase because, as I explain below, It is to be understood as an adjective).
Borsetto ha perÃ² seriamente girato gli archivi di Stato cercando di far luce su quegli stessi plebisciti con cui i veneti si unirono all’Italia nel 1866, ie the plebiscite by which claimed to undergo the "Constitutional monarchy of King Vittorio Emanuele II and his successors", ie the Savoy.
The plebiscite concerned the "Lombardo-Veneto", ie Venice, le province venete e la cittÃ di Mantova. But unlike what we usually think, for "Venetian provinces" is intended that the Venetian Republic, e non quelle che dell’attuale Italia sono chiamate venete. In fact they were Venetian, oltre all’attuale Veneto, Also the provinces of Bergamo, Brescia, Cream, Pordenone and Udine, all united in Venice for centuries, As Padua and other. In forget that they forget many stories of heroism, as when the Venetians transported the ships upon the mountains of Veronese, to put them in Garda Brescia and so save that for months was under siege. Or you miss when 500 Thienesi left and went to defend the brothers of Rovereto, at war with Trento, instead Veneta was never.
Definito l’ambito geografico delle province venete di allora e per molti tratti sociali e linguistici anche di oggi, in that plebiscite 1866 si doveva avere l’assenso all’annessione “Population freely accessed”, because it was a requirement of international treaties.
Vi erano infatti una serie di â€œpassaggi di proprietÃ â€ del territorio del Lombardo-Veneto che dovevano svolgersi, and the sale was not, as many believe, from Hapsburg monarchy to that of Savoie.
Rather the sale was initially between the Hapsburg monarchy, which again put the land to its rightful owner, ossia l’imperatore dei Francesi, whose ancestor Napoleon had knocked down with the troops from the Republic of Venice and sacked "Provissorio Government" (the Louvre in Paris and still full of looted goods).
L’allora imperatore dei Francesi, Napoleon anchesso, then the remitted, by means of a plenipotentiary representative, at the Venice Government as capital of the Lombard-Venetian Kingdom.
Subsequently, un plebiscito doveva sancire l’unione, free and voluntary, of the people interested in the monarchy of Savoy. Thus it would end the "Venetian question", che era una spina del fianco dell’Europa da quando la restaurazione aveva ripristinato tutti gli stati pre-rivoluzione francese, but leaving the land of San Marco without a government and at the mercy of neighboring governments.
Borsetto told us a preview of some elements in his book will find well documented and they tell us that this union was not all that much freer and more the result of having to close the Venetian question in precarious balance that still resulted in more 2 European in subsequent wars 70 years.
Many elements Borsetto revives moments of here, and it agrees to dwell on some elements that undermine the historical value of these plebiscites, agreeing with Montanelli.
In those plebiscites, for example, voters were not listed by electoral rolls , e di conseguenza chiunque aveva la possibilitÃ di votare piÃ¹ e piÃ¹ volte in seggi diversi, even when it was not even the common voter. In short, a little’ as the most recent plebiscites were held for "Padania". But even worse than these, those of 1866 were made so that voters who entered the polling station, no matter whether eligible or not, then they had to tell the president if they would vote for yes or no, per cui per il sÃ¬ veniva consegnata all’elettore una scheda bianca, for no one black.
Insomma non c’era alcuna segretezza , in un clima di intimidazione dove le guardie armate dei Savoia giÃ giravano da giorni, e c’erano stati degli arresti, with no soft rules of the time, and even among those arrested priests, faithful to the spirit and mission of the Venetian church that evil saw the new power as very pro-Jacobin.
Finally, but only as a foretaste of the book, You laugh when he learns that each seat had voting cards in any number, and she took no counting cards neither before nor after the voting, why not take some of the box to put the yes or vice versa was not a problem, lots of cards there were in abundance and not numbered.
In fact he could not even give a percentage of voters, no abstentions, nor of those eligible. Only the yes and the no so collected, as the street from everyone who passed. They are the ones that today are written on plaques affixed in the central squares of the Venetian capitals.
In short, a legally irreconcilable mess and historically more of a joke.
Sicuramente un libro che farÃ discutere, e forse a qualcuno verrÃ anche in mente di guardare con occhi un po’ more detached the present, con meno ideologia e piÃ¹ attenzione alle cose vere e ai diritti delle comunitÃ locali che giÃ troppo furono calpestate.
