Francesco Crispi 1818-1901


Oxford University Press

Francesco Crispi resigned from Giuseppe Garibaldi's government, but the magnanimity that he was determined to show in defeat was not displayed by the moderates in victory. The hostility of the moderates towards those who had fought to free Naples and Sicily from the Bourbons gathered momentum after Garibaldi had left for Caprera. Crispi agreed to stand for parliament in the third college in Palermo, but he was defeated in the first ballot by the moderate candidate, the Marquis di Torrearsa. He was then elected to the college of Castelvetrano. Crispi entered parliament with a set of ideas forged over a period of more than twenty years in politics. The idea of ‘the nation’ was a crucial element in Crispi's political thought. After the capture of Rome in 1870, Crispi's idea of an ongoing national revolution in Italy began to assume a more problematic character.
