This book studies the long debate accompanying the royal decrees of 1859 which, for Sardinia, envisaged the closure of the University and Court of Appeal at Sassari. The local authorities and citizens of the town forcefully called on the central government to withdraw the provisions on the grounds that such an unpopular decision would only further complicate the already difficult relations between the inhabitants of the province and the national state. In February 1860, with Terenzio Mamiani minister of Public Education, Pasquale Stanislao Mancini was appointed to carry out an “inspection” at the University in Sassari. Mancini however at the time was also standing for election in the constituency of Sassari which could explain his heartfelt defense of the need to retain the University of Sassari which, what is more, was the beneficiary of considerable private funding. Keeping the University then was seen as a way not only of promoting the spread of culture but of maintaining public order. In the spring of 1860 Mancini succeeded in finessing a large majority in the lower house of parliament to come to the defense of Italy’s smaller universities. And the law passed on 5 July 1860 filled the University of Sassari with renewed confidence for the future even if it did bring with it not a few difficulties on account of the tough financial restrictions the law imposed.
