In Piedmont-Sardinia, Count Cavour's new Cabinet takes office
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. With a restored reputation, 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.
