The recent establishment of a movement for independence from France in Savoy brings to mind the long struggle of the Valle d'Aosta, Italy, for autonomy, first from the House of Savoy, to which it belonged for seven hundred years, then from Italy, after Savoy was ceded to France in 1860. This article reviews the history of the two movements, stressing the historical bonds between the two regions, and points out some similarities between the two movements, but above all the differences.
