Italy has been governed very poorly ever since unification, much to the chagrin of Italian patriots. In the late 1970s I bought a copy of Garibaldi's Memoirs ["Memorie," Giulio Einaudi Editore, Torino (1975)] Pages 459-469 contain a chronology of his life after 1871. The following item is on Page 468.

<<26 settembre 1880. Dopo essersi dimesso da deputato, scrive a C. Dobelli, direttore del giornale "La Capitale," [...] "Tutt'altra Italia io sognavo nella mia vita, non questa, miserabile all'interno e umiliata all'estero">>
[After having resigned from Parliament, he writes to C. Dobelli, the editor of the newspaper "La Capitale," [...] "I dreamed of an altogether different Italy in my lifetime, not this one which is miserable internally and humiliated abroad."]
