On this Italian website  La Repubblica Romana del 1849 (The Roman Republic of 1849) for the first time, thousands of documents are collected and made available (newspapers, pamphlets, notices and loose leaflets, manuscripts, the fund gathered by the historian Giuseppe Spada) owned by the Library of Modern History and Contemporary in Rome. These are materials that are difficult to find and of fundamental importance for historical studies, published between the election to the papal throne of Pius IX (1792-1878) in 1846 and his definitive return to Rome in 1849. The collection thus covers the period of the European Revolution of 1848/49, which was in Italy also the period of the first War of Italian indpendence from the Habsburg monarchy and the unification of the Italian nation.
