Sumario: This essay provides an analysis of the politicalphilosophy of Vincenzo Gioberti (1801 -1852) in the his-torical context of the efforts for the unification of Italy.The author makes a tour of the historical and culturalbackground of Gioberti’s thought, since the European Restoration (1814 - 1814), after the defeat of Napoleon,until the Risorgimento, considering the events that for-ged the political movement that would lead to the institutionalization of the Italian nation (1861). The authorexamines the nationalism of Gioberti, particularly hisopinion about Italy as the cradle of civilization, the center of Catholicism, and therefore, the natural leader ofthe Western Christian culture.
