Depretis, Agostino

 

Born Jan. 31, 1813, in Mezzana-Corte-Bottaroni; died July 29, 1887, in Stradella. Italian political leader and statesman.

In 1847-48, Depretis took part in the liberal movement in Piedmont. In 1860 he joined the March of the Thousand; as pro-dictator of Sicily (G. Garibaldi was dictator), he followed C. B. Cavour’s line. On Sept. 14, 1860, Depretis was removed from office by Garibaldi. In 1873 he became leader of the so-called Left—a group that reflected the interests of the industrial and banking bourgeoisie and large landowners. Upon the fall of the Right on Mar. 25, 1876, Depretis headed the first cabinet of the Left, and held the post of prime minister in several cabinets (except for the 1879-81 period) until his death. Depretis was the most typical representative of trasformismo (transformism)—the political course that characterized the transition of a significant part of the Italian bourgeoisie (after the unification of Italy) from radical bourgeois-democratic positions to moderate monarchist conservatism. In the area of foreign policy, Depretis pushed for rapprochement with Austro-Hungary and Germany and accomplished the Triple Alliance of 1882. Depretis’ name is associated with the beginning of Italian expansion in Africa (the 1885 seizure of Massawa in Ethiopia).

Desi anterior izbucnirii Crizei Orientale in 1875, Italia s-a aratat rezervata fata de incercarile Romaniei de a obtine independenta pe cale diplomatica deoarece guvernul italian era interesat in mentinerea integritatii Imperiului otoman, pentru a impiedica extinderea Austro-Ungariei in Balcani, dar si pentru ca Italia nu isi putea permite o pozitie contrara marilor puteri din vestul Europei daca dorea sa ramana "noua garantie de pace si de liniste a Europei", conform spuselor lui Depretis (54), inaintea Congresului de la Berlin si in timpul desfasurarii acestuia, Italia a pledat cauza Romaniei.
