The '48 Italian movement was prepared and accompanied by a great number of publications in all the cities it reached: from Palermo, centre of the first movements, to Venice that would have resisted longer than all the other revolutionary republics. Unlike the press of the previous period, these newspapers emphasize the 'social matter', as the essential matter of life and the propeller of the energetic reforming activity. The idea of Nation and the one still emerging of class appeared, however , perfectly reconcilable.
