“VITTORIO EMANUELE IS COMING!” – TEMPORARY EXHIBITION IN BOLOGNA.

On Friday 7 July at 5.30 pm the Vicariate of Bologna of the Dynastic Orders of the Royal House of Savoy organized a visit to the temporary exhibition “Vittorio Emanuele is coming!” hosted at the Museum of the Risorgimento, located in Piazza Carducci, 5 in Bologna.

The Civic Museum of the Risorgimento of Bologna is located in the last home of the poet Giosué Carducci, where he lived from 1890. After his death in 1907, HM Queen Margherita donated the building to the Municipality, together with the adjacent park.

Inside the house, the layout, which exhibits a small percentage of the museum’s heritage, follows a path divided into five themed/chronological areas ranging from the French Revolution to the First World War, focusing mainly on local events and protagonists.

The exhibition “Vittorio Emanuele is coming!” contains documents and objects owned by the Museum of the Risorgimento that have been selected for the occasion from the archives of the museum, which are usually not accessible to the public. The exhibition focuses on the historical period between the celebrations of 1860 on the occasion of the visit of HM King Vittorio Emanuele II to the city of Bologna, following the plebiscite that united it to the Kingdom of Italy, up to the celebrations of the Great Emilian Exhibition held in the city in 1888.
