Abstract

How do politics and civil society develop a symbolic language which corresponds to the nineteenth-century experience of modernity and societal change? Taking post-risorgmental Italy as an example, this article examines local and transnational languages of sacralised politics, identifying symbolic forms which relate back to established traditions of local religious praxis while at the same time integrating international models of political ritual. The political cult of the dead as well as the staging of local identity within the new and still largely unfamiliar nation state offer historiens a rich field of research. Of particular interest are the ways in which Italian democrates and republicans confront political developments in the United States. Taking account of tensions between local, national and transnational symbolic language, the article demonstrates how context, usage and reception offer insights also into the political content of rituals. In Italy, since the 1860s, we notice in particular new municipal and civic frameworks for the sacralisation of politics, contributing to a new and different staging of nationality which at the same time relaxes estabished tensions between state and nation.
