Abstract

L'œuvre historique et juridique de Sismondi est aujourd'hui largement oubliée. Sa monumentale Histoire des Républiques Italiennes au Moyen Âge a pourtant contribué à « former l'esprit italien jusqu'à 1848 » (Carducci). Mais celui qui inspira à B. Constant l'idée que la liberté des Modernes n'est pas née en Angleterre mais dans les cités italiennes du XIIe siècle, entretient des liens particuliers avec les protagonistes du Risorgimento. Cet article met en lumière la singularité de la pensée de Sismondi dans la phase d'éveil du « processus risorgimental », ainsi que ses résistances face au mouvement nationaliste naissant. Sismondi's historical and juristic work has now been widely forgotten, although his imposing History of the Italian Republics in the Middle Ages contributed to the « fashioning of the Italian mind until 1848 » (Carducci). The man who inspired B. Constant's idea that the liberty of the Modern did not originate in England but in the twelfth-century Italian republics, entertains special connections with the protagonists of the Risorgimento. This paper lays emphasis on the peculiarities of Sismondi's views during the early phase of the « risorgimental process » and on his hesitancy about the emerging nationalist movement.
