The volume contains the proceedings of the conference held on October 6th, 2012, at the Auditorium of the Foundation Montanelli Bassi, Fucecchio. The aim of the conference was to develop a historiographical reflection on Giuseppe Montanelli on the occasion of the 150th anniversary of his death. His figure had a great importance in the Tuscan and Italian “Risorgimento”, and his federalist proposal, despite having been defeated at his time, has now come back in contemporary Italy with all its poignancy.
