Description The essay analyses the relationship between administration and territory at the birth of the Italian unitary state. Follow­ ing the discussions of the time involving scholars of diverse disciplinary provenance, politicians, and administrators, the essay highlights the main problems encountered by the de­ sign of the administrative districts of the new Kingdom of Italy: the territorial contradictions and the imbalances that conditioned their initial structure and subsequent history; the legacy of the boundaries and internal territorial divisions of the former states of the peninsula; the various propos­ als put forward for the country’s regional organization by geographers, statisticians and politicians, even before the completion of uni cation; the territorial and administrative problems of the new state: natural or arti cial districts, small or large provinces, the weight of municipalities, projects of regionalization; the contribution of new sciences, such as ge­ ography and statistics; the choice of administrative central­ization, with its inevitable consequences on the boundaries of territorial partitions, linked to the ›exceptionality‹ of the historical moment.
