Carlo Luigi Farini (1812–1866)

Farini, Carlo Luigi. An Italian statesman and historian; born at Russi, Oct. 22, 1812; died on Aug. 1, 1866. His influence contributed much to the union of Central Italy with the kingdom of Victor Emmanuel II. His ‘History of the Roman State from 1815 to 1850’ (1850) was translated into English; and his ‘History of Italy,’ a continuation of Botta’s celebrated work, is a performance of merit.
