The treaty annexing Savoy and Nice is signed in Turin

Louis Napoleon Bonaparte, circa 1850, detail
The treaty of annexation that delivered Savoy and Nice to France was signed at Turin, the capital of Piedmont-Sardinia.  Piedmont-Sardinia had collaborated as part-payment for France's role in the recent war with Austria and the kingdom's free hand with the Duchies of Modena and Palma and gave up all future Italian claims to the area.  The French flag was raised the same day in Savoy's capital town of Chambéry.  (By John Osborne)
