Tuttavia, nel frattempo, la violenza del Medioevo e del Cinquecento narrata dai romanzieri trovera concreta rappresentazione a Custoza, Novara, Melegnano e Lissa mentre gli assedi dalla Firenze comunale si sposteranno alla Roma di Pio IX e alle macchine da guerra medievali si sostituiranno i moschetti e i cannoni del Regio Esercito Italiano.
My final stop was in Custoza - the site of two major battles during the 19th century Italian wars of independence.

Indeed, the screen versions of the Risorgimento produced in Italy in the sound era always limit their field to the nineteenth century, and to specific events, mostly avoiding obscure or even only problematic moments in the revolutionary process, such as the battles of Custoza and Novara, which find only occasional representation in the history of Italian cinema--and most notably in Luchino Visconti's splendid rendering of his personal interpretation of Italian Risorgimento in Senso (1954).
