Abstract

From the 1820s until the 1840s, the myth of the Lombard League enjoyed an overwhelming success in the whole Italian culture. The main reason for such a development is widely recognized by scholars: the myth provided a patriotic narration built on the assumption that the conflict between the League and the Emperor Frederick I “Barbarossa” had been a fight for Italian independence against German tyranny, a perspective that fitted the political aims of the Risorgimento. Therefore, the theme was exploited by literature, poetry, painting and historiography as well. This essay aims to contextualize the History of the Lombard League written by the Benedictine monk Luigi Tosti, and to underline this author’s contribution to the elaboration of the myth.
