Photographer's Note

For the Italian unification commemoration, the plaque of via Cavour of Lovere has been decorated.

Cavour is indeed considered as one of the fathers of Italian country, along with Giuseppe Garibaldi Giuseppe Mazzini and Victor Emmanuel II. Curiously, these four "fathers of the country" did not share all the same ideas.

Liberal, reformer, moderate, Cavour is far removed from the revolutionary ideas of Mazzini. The two men represent two different conceptions of the Risorgimento (Resurrection in Italian). Earlier, he had also objected to Victor Emmanuel II, who could not look favorably on an alliance between the moderate conservatives and "Labour" monarchist. A dispute has also objected to Garibaldi in 1861, about the volunteer army of Garibaldi.
