L’amicizia politica nell’Ottocento: Giuseppe Mazzini e Francesco Crispi


Giuseppe Mazzini and Francesco Crispi were very close friends. Their relationship is a typical case of political friendship in the nineteenth century. The first one was the political teacher and the living icon of Italian republicans. After the Unity, Crispi decided to leave republican side and to support constitutional parliament, even if under monarchy, unlike Mazzini, who wished conspire against the reign. This astonishing choice divided him from his old teacher Mazzini, and this loud breach between two great friends and democrat leaders broke the Left too.
