Italy may be a history full country but it's quite young. After Roman Empire's fall, Italy had been divided in small states and little cities under the control of foreign nations like France, Spain and Austria. But that wasn't the final stage back in 1861, there were more sacrifices and wars to be fought, to become that Italy what we see today. There were a series of wars to get independence from foreign rule. Garibaldi liberated the south in 1860. After a National vote in 1861 most of the nation became united under King Victor Emmanuel II of the House of Savoy. For example Rome joined the Italian Kingdom only in 1870 when the Papal state fell and the Pope had to accept the Vatican as his own territory.
