There are 12 “newcomers” in the “2011 Historical Places of Italy”, published by
Associazione Locali Storici d’Italia. In honor of the 150th anniversary of the unification of Italy the guide  reports details of 35 historical places that hosted episodes of unification during the
Risorgimento period.
Unique, reviewed by the Italian press alongside the most important national
leaders, the 2011 edition talks about two hundred thirty-two 
prestigious hotels, restaurants, bakeries, confectioneries, grapperia and
literary cafes that have made the history of Italian Country and where are kept 
environments, atmosphere, decor, memorabilia, and even products of unequaled
beauty and taste.
Details, curious and unusual incidents of Italian Risorgimento are mentioned in this guide. In
the Flower of Turin in 1821, they plotted to poison Carlo Alberto the King. The prime minister Cavour was sitting at the Exchange every day. Garibaldi dine in the fort against the Saracens of the Bai of Genoa… The Des Iles Borromèes Stresa was created by Bixio, the patriot who led the
