Political prisoners: a transnational question in 19th century Italy

Project description

Italian political prisoners in 19th century

Political refugees and political prisoners are part of a debate in Europe today. The European sensitivity towards persecuted persons is not new, since it dates back to 19th century. The EU-funded PoliticalPrisoners project aims to study the role Italian political prisoners played in Italy as well as abroad. The project will study their impact on the national-patriotic discourse and their contribution to the understanding of and commitment to the Italian Risorgimento at the international level. Moreover the project will follow the international and humanitarian dimension of political imprisonment, attempting to show that political prisoners were an issue of international interest since the 19th century.
