The impending celebrations to mark the unity of Italy have provided us with an opportunity to host a major exhibition steeped in both the history and the art of the period. The exhibition will be exploring the way in which Italian painting interpreted the momentous events that took place between 1859-60 (the Second War of Independence and the Expedition of Garibaldi's "Mille", his 1,000 followers) and 1861 (the proclamation of the Kingdom of Italy) that gave the country its freedom, its independence and its national unity.
