HUI 239 11-3-09 Lecture “Southern Question” still alive today. This is sparking a lot of debate in Italy. The Northern League is part of the government. Its leader is Umberto Bossi. During unification, when Garibaldi’s men went to Sicily, they had to use tough measures to deal with the Sicilians. Southern Italians considered the unification of Italy as an annexation, rather than a unification of Italy. Side-note: During WWII, when the Allies landed in Sicily in July 1943 and freed Sicily, a movement of secession (which lasted about 3 years) emerged, where Sicily wanted to separate from the rest of Italy. They were even talking about making Sicily another state of the United States. People that were fighting the Piedmonts were labeled “bandits” and “brigands”. Most of them were not criminals, but fought because of their class struggles. When Garibaldi’s men arrived in Sicily, feudalism was still in effect there. When liberation came from the North, people thought that there would be profound social changes, so the people that did fight Garibaldi’s men were doing so because of class struggles. The perception of Italy in the US was as a land of great civilization and intellectuals. All that changed at the end of the 19 th century with the arrival of immigrants.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
