An interesting map of Italy, published in the years following the Congress of Vienna and before the unification.

The Grand Duchy of Tuscany, the Duchies of Lucca, Modena, and Parma, the Republic of San Marino, the Kingdoms of Sardinia, the Two Sicilies, Lombardy-Venetia, and the Papal State of Rome are shown, as well as Italian-speaking possessions of France (Corsica), Switzerland (Ticino), Austria (Tirol and Istria), and England (Malta).

Marmocchi, a member of La Giovine Italia, was arrested in July 1831 in Tuscany for his participation in a pro-unification uprising, jailed, and then exiled to Naples until 1834. He was arrested again in 1848, but released and later appointed Secretary of the Interior in the Provisional Government from February to April 1849, when the Austrian armies reinstalled the Grand Duke in Tuscany. He fled to Rome, where he stayed until his arrest following the fall of the short-lived Roman Republic in July of that same year to French forces, intent on restoring Pope Pius IX, and was exiled to Corsica. Unable to return to Tuscany after being tried in absentia and sentenced to a 15-year prison sentence by the Royal Court in 1853, he reunited with his family in Genoa.
