Cultura francese e cultura polacca in Giuseppe Mazzini

Abstract : During the 19th century, Giuseppe Mazzini communicated to his contemporaries the feeling of a strong hostility against France, to defend his project of emancipation of Italy (and Europe) from French tutelage. So he decided to choose other models and other examples, in European literature, that could serve as a guide and reference point. In particular, he was influenced by Polish poets, who convinced him that poetry could animate the " Europe of the people " and guide them to achieve the major objectives of the " new epoch ". Polish literature is the origin of Mazzini's exaltation of Risorgimento poetry and constituted a positive reference point to counter the decline and loss of influence of French culture.
