Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Italian Corsicans are Italian-speaking people from the island of Corsica, who promoted the union of Corsica with Italy. They were so termed by Irredentists in the Kingdom of Italy after Italian unification in the late 19th century and during the country's Fascist period.Corsica was considered Italian (ethnically, linguistically and historically) until 1768, when the Republic of Genoa, which had ruled the island for centuries, ceded the island to France, one year before the birth of Napoleon Bonaparte in the capital city of Ajaccio. Under French rule, the use of the Corsican language, which is closely related to standard Italian, has gradually declined and has been replaced by French.
