Cavour by The Countess Evelyn Martinengo-Cesaresco (1852 - 1931).

All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/cavour-by-countess-evelyn-martinengo-cesaresco/
Camillo Benso, Count of Cavour (1810-1861) was an Italian statesman and a leading figure in the movement for Italian unification. A nobleman born in Turin, Cavour founded the political newspaper "Il Risorgimento." An ardent admirer of Britain's constitution monarchy, with whose statesmen he forged strong diplomatic ties, he rose to become prime minister of Piedmont-Sardinia under King Victor Emmanuel II. By skillful maneuvering, Cavour enlisted the military support of Emperor Napoleon III of France in freeing the Italian states from Austrian tyranny, and in an uneasy alliance with the military leader Giuseppe Garibaldi, he forged the modern Italian state. (Pamela Nagami, M.D.)

    IMPORTANT - soloist, please note: in order to limit the amount of languishing projects (and hence the amount of files on our hard-pressed server), we ask that you post an update at least once a month in your project thread, even if you haven't managed to record anything. If we don't hear from you for three months, your project may be opened up to a group project if a Book Coordinator is found. Files you have completed will be used in this project. If you haven't recorded anything yet, your project will be removed from the forum (contact any admin to see if it can be re-instated).
    Please don't download or listen to files belonging to projects in process (unless you are the BC or PL). Our servers are not set up to handle the greater volume of traffic. Please wait until the project has been completed. Thanks!

His grandmother indeed. But such a gallery of characters and tiny domains that I've never heard of. Cavour does seems to have had a charmed childhood.

Oh, and PL OK.

So interesting! PL OK.

"To love her was a liberal education". Stephen says that to Jack, when speaking of Sophie. And I find that both quotations are drawn from Steele. But I'll bet you knew that!

Best,

Barbara
