The parody of the Lombardo-Veneto independence activist is a healthy mockery of a sentiment that does not actually exist, especially among the Venetians. If anything, it dwells among the nostalgics of the Catholic Monarchy of the Holy Roman Empire, often linked to the world of traditionalists who contest the Second Vatican Council. It exists even stronger in the Friulian faction that the Hapsburg yoke incited against the Venetian brothers in order to undermine the latter. But it does not exist among the Venetians. Especially since historically the Habsburgs only reveled in the riches of the Venetians.
In the book of Thaon of Revel “1859 and Central Italy” you find this passage describing how the Habsburg administration, the Emperor himself, sent the Venetians to do military service , specifically away from their families when they expressed antipathy to the regime .
Thus, there was a system of political police that kept track of dissidents.
Now, as confusing as it may be, this system also exists in republican Italy, and the demonstration are the trials in the courts where the Venetians are systematically denied human rights, economic and social. I can be a direct witness not only for me, but for many other cases.
And still today, in 2022, the right to an impartial and independent judge is systematically denied. Indeed, being that the annexation of the 1866 is null and void and was canceled in 2010, how does the Italian judge in Lombardy-Veneto which is not Italy manage to be impartial and independent?
