Giosuè Carducci

Giosuè Carducci came to Bologna on 10 November 1860 and his teaching at the University coincided with the Unity of Italy. He was 25 years old, and had been appointed as professor of Italian literature. Having read his book of poems "Rime", Minister Mamiani sought him out in Pistoia, where he taught Greek in a high school.

Carducci Classroom
At the time of the annexation to the Kingdom of Italy, the Faculty of Literature and Philosophy in Bologna had six chairs; the chair of Italian and Latin Literature was held by a priest, monsignor Gaetano Golfieri, who refused to swear allegiance to the King of Italy. Giovanni Prati was invited to take over from the protester, although he claimed that family matters impeded him from accepting and so the chair was offered to Giosuè Carducci.
