Italy became a nation-state in 1861. In the 1920's Benito Mussolini established a fascist dictatorship, which ended an era of parliamentary government.

His disastrous alliance with Nazi Germany led to Italy's defeat in World War II. A democratic republic replaced the monarchy in 1946 and economic revival followed. Italy has been at the forefront of European economic and political unification, joining the economic and monetary Union in 1999. Persistent problems include illegal immigration, organized crime, corruption, high unemployment, sluggish economic growth, and the low incomes and technical standards of southern Italy compared with the prosperous north.
