The Treaty of Zurich is signed between France, Austria, and Piedmont-Sardinia

Louis Napoleon Bonaparte, circa 1850, detail
11/11/1859
Representatives met in Zurich in August and September to formalize the agreement to end the war between France, Piedmont-Sardinia, and Austria. The final details were little changed from the earlier armistice in July and the document was signed in Zurich. Piedmont-Sardinia received Lombardy but, to the great disappointment of Italian nationalism, other states like Venice or Tuscany remained under Austrian control or influence. (By John Osborne)
