Piedmont

Piedmont is a region of NW Italy, bounded by Lombardy, France and Switzerland. Formerly part of the historic Duchy of Savoy, it was annexed by the French Republic in 1792. By the Treaty of Vienna 1815, it combined with the island of Sardinia to form a state officially known as the Kingdom of Sardinia. However, Turin was the capital and Piedmont, one of the most dynamic nations of 19th century Europe, is the name generally used by historians. The island of Sardinia was very much the junior partner. Piedmont's most prominent figure was Count Camillo Cavour (1810–61), the statesman who inspired and forged the unification of Italy under Piedmont's leadership.

Stamps were issued in Turin on 1 January 1851 but do not show the country's name. The first stamps of unified Italy, issued in 1862, were also printed in Turin.

In the catalogues, Gibbons list the Piedmont/Sardinia stamps under Sardinia. This is strictly correct but, in view of the historical prominence of Piedmont, this work follows the accepted practice of most historians. The relative insignificance of the island of Sardinia is perhaps best illustrated by the fact that Cavour, although a noted traveller, never actually visited it!
