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.

Hello Delphine - I am never too sure how critiquing works on TE. Her you have uploaded a shot full of interesting visual detail and yet no comments whatsoever. I have no knowledge of the man who is commemorated in this plaque but the shot I like. Well composed, the square crop is perfect, and the textural detail in the plaster work excellent. The rosette with its clean white stripe adds a very good contrast. Have a good weekend. Warm regards rosemary

Cette photo "commémorative" est de très belle qualité, par sa composition, ses couleurs et la belle lumière du moment.

I like the details in this photo very much - you've captured the textures of the wall (especially with the cracks), sign and ribbon very well. A simple yet highly effective composition - well done!
