Neapolitan revolution of 1820-21 has been diffusely considered a marginal rising by a wide part of Italian historiography. According to this view, it would be a movement quite disjointed to the following events regarding Italian "Risorgimento", especially because of its short duration (july 1820-march 1821) and of the limited impact exercised by it on "Regno delle Due Sicilie's" population. Maria Sofia Corciulo’s last work - Una Rivoluzione per la Costituzione (1820-’21) - with its meaningful subtitle Agli albori del Risorgimento Meridionale - aims to contradict these superficial evaluations, by a deep analysis of a rich historical and archive literature, in order to present a firm "revaluation" of the event, both from an institutional and socio-cultural point of view.

Keywords: Revolution, constitutionalism, national identity
