Count Cavour recalled as prime minister of Piedmont-Sardinia

Count Cavour Camillo, detail
01/17/1860
Count Cavour had resigned as prime minister of Piedmont-Sardinia six months before over the terms of the treaty ending the war between France and Austria.  When King Victor Emmanuel recalled him, Cavour immediately set about to negotiate with the French, notably exchanging Savoy and Nice for freedom to annex Tuscany and Emilia to the emerging united Italian state.  (By John Osborne)
