Terroni. Tutto quello che è stato fatto perché gli italiani del Sud diventassero meridionali. This is the title of the first book, published in 2014, dedicated to Pino Aprile and it tells the history of South of Italy from the national unification to the recent past. After the first one, three other books were published. The historiographic work of the three works is weak and It reflects a secular literature, based on the interpretation of the Risorgimento as a prosperous kingdom conquest done by the Piedmont, considered one of the advanced countries of that time. The nostalgic historical revisionism of Pino Aprile and other journalists about the Risorgimento has no scientific importance, but It contributes in an important way to the construction of a common sense of the South of Italy history with political repercussion. Therefore, historians should pay attention to it. This paper represents a case of history told to the population with its legacy of simplifications and anachronisms.
Keywords: Anachronism, Civil war, Common sense of the history, Historic revisionism, Ristorgimento, South of Italy.
