Giuseppe Mazzini (June 22, 1805 - March 10, 1872) was a Genoese-born Italian nationalist closely involved in the Risorgimento (1848-1871), a period that saw the often violent unification of different states situated on the Italian Peninsula, including the Papal States, under Victor Emmanuel II, Savoyard monarch of the Kingdom of Piedmont-Sardinia, which became the Kingdom of Italy.
