The return of the Austrian regime, after the capitulation of Milan on 5 August 1848, was accompanied by the adoption of a very repressive policy. In Monza the restoration of the absolute regime and the heavy measures imposed on the population provoke, at least in the weeks immediately following the end of the brief revolutionary interlude, manifestations of discontent and defiance towards foreign authorities. It is in this context of strong tension where communication between occupants and employed proceeds between the issuance of prohibitions and duties on the one hand, relating, at least in this first phase, to the control of public order, and the violation on the other, that takes place the shooting of Carlo and Pietro Rivolta, father and son sentenced to death for possessing weapons and ammunition. This essay, in reconstructing the urban climate before and after the massacre, also intends to show how the death of the Rivoltas, in unitary Italy as well as in the fascist and republi- can one, is distorted as compared to its original motive and made assonant to the narrative needs of the epochs cited.
Keywords: Carlo and Pietro Rivolta, Monza, 1848, Italian martyrs, Risorgimento.
