L’Italia s’è desta. La stampa satirica per una storia iconografica dell’unità d’Italia, dalla Repubblica Romana a Roma Capitale
The exhibition aims to provide a historical and iconographic interpretation of the Risorgimento through the works of art and creativity published in newspapers and magazines of the time by the most talented Italian illustrators.
These publications have shaped the history of our country through satire: Don Pirlone published in Rome (the first magazine to openly oppose the temporal power of the popes), Cassandrino (a conservative and clerical magazine, instead) and Er Rugantino; Lo spirito folletto in Milan, Il lampione in Florence (founded, among others, by Carlo Lorenzini, who under the pen name of Collodi became popular for his "Avventure di Pinocchio"); Il fischietto in Turin (one the most important magazine of the period for its graphic content and the great caricatures by Redenti, Virginio, Teja and others); La strega in Genoa (attacked for its content both by liberals and conservatives).
In this regard it is worth mentioning the fact that Cavour was the instigator of Pasquino, founded in 1856 in Turin and published continuously until 1930, that has become over the years the prototype of the Italian satirical magazines.
