How did Napoleon effect nationalism, industrialism, and imperialism in Germany, Italy, and Spain?

Problem with this article[edit]

"The Italian unification (1796-1861)" section has a big hole, between the last paragraph and the one before it. At least some words must be said about how Italy became unified.Oleg Alexandrov | talk 20:25, 22 Jan 2005 (UTC)

comment from moved from the article[edit]

Why is the writer so relecutant to speak of Islamic rule over Italy? As incompetent as the author seems, I am sure he is aware that history cannot be changed by simply omitting the facts. Islam has contributed greatly to Italian culture and it's glorious remnants are still visible today.

Why not merge with Italian unification? 14:41, 2 April 2007 (UTC)

Probably makes more sense just to add the unification article to the infobox, move the unification content of this article into the unification article, and then rename this article to Italy under foreign domination or whatever you want to call it - there is probably a better name.

Oops, just noticed, unification is already on the infobox, and is in pretty good shape, probably GA-worthy. So all the more reason just to pare out the independence stuff. FlagSteward (talk) 15:36, 9 February 2008 (UTC)

I renamed the article, since the unification stuff seems to be no longer here. --Eldred (talk) 23:51, 11 February 2008 (UTC)

this is too unclear. The article appears to treat the period 1559-1814. That's essentially Early Modern Italy plus the Napolenonic period. We might split off Italy in the Napoleonic era and reduce this article's scope to Early Modern Italy (1559 to 1796). dab (𒁳) 15:02, 12 February 2008 (UTC)

Good change. I don't see a need to split the article further, though. It seems pretty small already. --Eldred (talk) 15:48, 12 February 2008 (UTC)
