Discorsi Parlamentari : (1861-1879)
Bettino Ricasoli, Italian statesman, was deputy of the Italian Parliament from 1860 to 1880, when he died. During that long period, his participation in parliamentary discussions has been very careful, and his interventions have marked some of the most relevant issues in the activity of the Parliament, with particular regard to the political plan of the Tuscan moderates. The dialogue with his colleagues was inevitably intensified by the two government experiences (1861-62 and 1866-67), when Ricasoli, as Prime Minister, had to defend his positions in the context of the executive branch. This volume gathers for the first time all the parliamentary speeches of Ricasoli in front of the Italian Chamber of Deputies and the Senate of the Republic, allowing us to better understand his figure and his vision of the State . The ideal plot outlined by these speeches follows Italy s first steps after unification, dealing with the main problems of its foundation. The introduction offers an itinerary through general themes; the introductory note preceding each speech allows to reconstruct the political and parliamentary context.
