The bibliography of the 150TH anniversary of the Unification of Italy is quite large. An enormous quantity of cultural initiatives have been added to the publishing activity: historical itineraries, exhibitions and conferences, documented by proceedings, videos and pictures available on the web. Web sites have been highly considered and they represent enormous, easy to access, data banks. Unlike previous celebrations of the Fiftieth and Hundredth anniversaries, this anniversary pays particular attention to historical recalling. The purpose of this review consists of collecting and sharing the large, heterogeneous literary production, divided into different subjects. This retrospective collection reflects the interpretation of the unification process made by experts, by the Guarantors’ Committee of Celebrations, and also by common opinion, pointing out problems and open issues. The first section deals with the general contributions related to pre- and post- unification. A paragraph speaks about relevant figures in the Risorgimento. Then, the reader meets with contributions reporting particular issues, statistics, work and economy, and historical cartography. Luoghi della Memoria (Venues of memory) is quite special with its twofold physical and psychological dimension.
