With the celebration of the 150th anniversary of the Unification of Italy several revisionist interpretations of the Risorgimento have appeared, which tend to delegitimize and present it as a series of crimes perpetrated against both Italian peo-ple and institutions. This study analyzes the path made by this production since 2000, highlighting specific editorial circuits and entering into the most successful and most representative pages. It also measures the specific gravity of this production over the past twelve years, compared with the historiography produced in Italy on the Risorgimento, highlighting a number of books not negligible and hard work of some authors that in recent years have presented (also dealing with relevant publishers) some actual complaints about the process of State-building.
