Although the state budget was never on firm ground, it also never fell into the abyss, as fiscal policy was successively adapted and revised so that revenues could rise to meet expenditures. There was a major reason behind such a consistent position of Italian governments: the fact that sound financial policies were the basis for financing the military and achieving great-power status. Public expenditures were, however, not a unifying factor. On the contrary, unification meant that the tax load of the poorer South increased.

However, the national debt and taxation were widely considered bulwarks of liberty and Protestantism against the French. The elites did largely identify with the purposes of the state (Pocock 1985; Dickson 1967; Hoppit 1990, 2002; O’Brien 2002; Peden 2002). Underlying both forms of trust were administrative and political processes: the small scale of tax farming and the sale of offices; the weakness or absence of provincial estates and exemptions, with the consequent ability to impose universal taxes; and the development of accounting methods to monitor the state.

The contrast with ancien regime France is clear: the British state was able to extract a higher level of taxation, with less resistance and tension, and to use the revenue to fund loans for warfare and imperial expansion (Brewer 1989; Mathias and O’Brien 1976; Daunton 2006). Trust in the tax system and the state started to weaken during the wars with Revolutionary and Napoleonic France between 1793 and 1815 – and most seriously during the return to peace. 1), which caused alarm and contributed to a debate over the incidence of taxation that was central to the emergence of a middleclass identity (Wahrman 1995).
