    Book synopsis: The nation of the Risorgimento born in the moment in which it is built a system of narratives and representations that the appoint, define and structure as a set of myths and symbols. Starting from this assumption, the book contributions are meant to illustrate both aspects mythographic (ie the procedures through which the myths and symbols are constructed), both mythological aspects (ie the nature and the implications of the specific symbolic-mythological system). On the one hand, therefore, they break down the myths in their components, to observe the construction into individual "labs ?, which were, in turn, literary, pictorial, musical, historiographical, hagiographic. On the other hand, it describes the symbolic and communicative implications of a discourse that appeals to emotion, rather than reason, that tells the naturalness of the nation, rather than its changing any historicity. Subject of the analysis are then different aspects of the nation's image, and, where possible, the reactions of the addressees of the mythological artifacts produced in book form, a map, a framework or opera.
