  • The Sack of Genoa happened between Thursday April 5 and Wednesday April 11, 1849. Genoa was then part of the Kingdom of Piedmont-Sardinia, but had only become so comparatively recently, after the defeat of Napoleon. The uprising broke out in Genoa after King Vittorio Emanuele II (succeeding his father Carlo Alberto after the defeat of Novara) signed the armistice with the Austrian general Joseph Radetzky on March 25.In the unrest that led to a temporary restoration of an autonomous government (missed by the inhabitants) in the ancient capital of the Republic of Genoa, General Alfonso La Marmora was sent by the king to quell the revolt. After several days of violent clashes, starting on 5 April the city was bombarded without any warning for thirty-six hours in clear violation of international law. During the heavy bombing on April 5, the government troops began targeting the civilian homes; Genoese people were able to withstand up to 11 April, when the city was occupied by an army of 25,000-30,000 soldiers (the Italian Bersaglieri).During this period, the soldiers resorted to the most petty actions against civilians, raping women and killing fathers and brothers who opposed the massacre, firing through the windows at the people and running through the streets shouting Genoese people are all Balilla (referring to the deeds of the young Genoese patriot Balilla), they do not deserve compassion, we must kill them all!When the occupation was done, Vittorio Emanuele II thanked the General La Marmora with a letter.

The uprising broke out in Genoa after King Vittorio Emanuele II (succeeding his father Carlo Alberto after the defeat of Novara) signed the armistice with the Austrian general Joseph Radetzky on March 25.The Genoese, reluctant members of the Kingdom of Piedmont-Sardinia, restored autonomous government in the ancient capital of the Republic of Genoa. General Alfonso La Marmora was sent by the king to quell the revolt. After several days of violent clashes, starting on 5 April the city was bombarded without warning for thirty-six hours in clear violation of contemporary customs of war. During the heavy bombardment of April 5, the government troops began to attack civilian homes; Genoese resisted effectively to 11 April, when the city was occupied by an army of 25,000-30,000 soldiers (the Italian Bersaglieri).When the city was effectively occupied, Vittorio Emanuele II thanked General La Marmora with a letter.
