The last act: the Kingdom of Italy

In March 1861 the Subalpine Parliament, reunited in Palazzo Carignano, proclaimed the Kingdom of Italy, annexing the Kingdom of Bourbon conquered by Garibaldi: the King of Piedmont and Sardinia find the King of Italy. He left the Parliament and triumphantly walked the square, among soldiers and dignitaries. However, we are far from the people who celebrated the proclamation of the Albertine Statute that makes the Monarchy constitutional in 1848.

In the celebratory painting of Carlo Bossoli, emerges the almost medieval setting of the triumph of the King, with the pavilion placed at the bottom of the square, crossed by the royal carriage to reach the Palace.
