Abstract

After the irredentist emphasis of the first five years following national unification, the political and military events of 1866 led to a sharp decline in the most "movementist" stances of Risorgimento, and pushed the Italian political and military leadership to find a difficult modus vivendi with Austria. The ensuing normalization of bilateral relations did not mean -– in any case -- a true end in Austro-Italian tensions, which would have lasted (albeit latently) even after the signing of the Tripartite Alliance (1882). The proposed paper aims at outlining the political and military dimensions of this highly nuanced picture, moving from the plans that the Italian General Staff developed to face the (never fully ruled out) possibility of a new armed confrontation with Vienna. Within this framework, a special attention will be devoted to the problem of the "securization" of the Italian eastern border, an issue that would have had relevant implications (at both practical and symbolic level) on the Italian relation with the Adriatic and Danube area at least until the beginning of the First world war.
