Google Doodle History: Anniversary of Rome (Sep 20, 2010)

Sep 20, 2010 - 140th Anniversary of Rome - (Italy) 

The Capture of Rome (20 September 1870) was the final event of the long process of Italian unification known as the Risorgimento, which finally unified the Italian peninsula under King Victor Emmanuel II of the House of Savoy. Venezia-Giulia, Trentino, and Alto Adige were still under Austrian rule. They were not annexed to Italy until after the First World War. (Wikipedia)
