Palazzo Farnese - Piazza Cittadella, 29
Located in Palazzo Farnese south wing mezzanine, the Risorgimento Museum was inaugurated in 1988. Most of the collection derives from the collection of antiques belonging to count Dionigi Barattieri since the beginning of the 20th century. But the public display of such materials (and their final exhibition in the palaces rooms) has been possibile since 1937 above all thanks to count Giuseppe Salvatore Manfredi, nephew of the patriot Giuseppe Manfredi. The pieces exhibited regard mainly two important periods of Italian history: 1848-49 and 1859-61, with particular reference to Mazzini and Garibaldi. Such pieces range from publications to arms, documents, uniforms and various kinds of objects. Junot General Decree (1806), among them, is very remarkable :it tells about Naspoleon's repression against those people enrolled in the French army. There are also important documents concerning Piacenza timely plebiscitarian adhesion to the Kingdom of Sardinia, in 1848, act after which Piacenza was called Primogenita (first born child)by king Carlo Alberto.
