I due anni, dal 1859 al 1861, in cui l’Italia, divisa per secoli, è diventata una nazione, sono stati memorabili anche per la storia dell’arte, in particolare per la pittura, chiamata a testimoniare questa straordinaria vicenda.
Artisti come Giovanni Fattori, il pittore soldato Gerolamo Induno, Federico Faruffini, Eleuterio Pagliano, Michele Cammarano s’impegnarono a narrare la dinamica e lo spirito delle celebri battaglie della Seconda guerra di indipendenza ma anche a rendere la passione che animò Garibaldi e le sue leggendarie Camicie rosse, trovando toni e forza espressiva originali e innovativi, in opere, prive di ogni retorica celebrativa, dove i veri protagonisti sono gli umili soldati, spesso travolti dalla storia. È ancora la vita del popolo a risaltare nei dipinti, in cui i macchiaioli Fattori, Silvestro Lega, Odoardo Borrani, ma anche i romantici lombardi Francesco Hayez, Domenico e Gerolamo Induno, o il siciliano Giuseppe Sciuti, hanno saputo rappresentare i riflessi di quegli eventi storici all’interno delle mura domestiche componendo l’altro volto del Risorgimento, quello intimo e privato, in capolavori unici per intensità emotiva o drammatico pathos.
