The Revolutionary War of Sicily. Constitution, counterrevolution,
In this paper we aim to discuss the conflict between Sicily and Naples in the nineteenth-century. Using historical and historiographical categories of counter-revolution, constitution, and nation, we try to figure out why the Bourbon kingdom collapses in Sicily. The protagonist of three revolutions (1812, 1820 and 1848) and an endless series of confrontations and violence, two projects will come from the island National Anti-Neapolitans. The first was the loser of the «small country» Sicilian, the second was the winner of the «great nation» Italian.
