The process of unification of Italy:
1. Chief Minister Cavour diplomatically joined Sardinia-Piedmont, the only princely state, in an alliance with France.
2. Armed volunteers led by Giuseppe Garibaldi also supported the troops. They marched into South Italy and the Kingdom of Two Sicilies.
3. They won the support of local peasants in South and in 1861, Victor Emmanuel II was declared the king of unified Italy.
Explanation: Unification of Italy also has a long political history like that of Germany. However, even after unification, the common peasants didn’t know about the nationalist ideology.
