I’m studying ‘The unification of Italy, 1830-1870’ for 20% of my history alevel. I’m finding this part of the course really hard to grasp and understand. Has anyone done this course and got any useful revision tips/ tactics/ any useful books or documentaries? (I’ve tried the textbook already)
Thank-you and happy holidays!

I am doing the Unification of Italy but with OCR. I found it to be the easier of the two exams I sat at AS. If you have any questions regarding content then feel free to ask. My course is 1789-1896 just to let you know.

Thankyou! Mine is 1830-70 so a fall within your year span so I expect the style of content is not too different maybe just not as detailed as my year span is much shorter. Did you use just your textbook or do wider reading as well?

I just used the textbook and mad essay plans for all the possible questions. There is no harm in reading extra books but first learn the content based on the specification.

Cavour, Garibaldi, Napoleon, Victor Emmanuel and arguably Mazzini. Mazzini didn't unify Italy geographically but helped build Italian nationalism through his journalism. Prussia could be possibly discussed as well due to their involvement in the 1866 and 1870 wars which helped win Venetia and Rome respectively.

‘The Crimean War was the biggest turning point of Italian Unification’ How far do you agree?

‘Cavour was the most important individual in achieving Italian Unification’ How far do you agree?

‘Austria was the biggest reason for the failure of the 1848/49 revolutions’ How far do you agree?

‘Economic factors was the biggest reason for the cause of the 1848/49 revolutions’ How far do you agree?

‘Italy was more divided than united in 1870’ How far do you agree?
