From the middle age to the 19th century was Italy just a geographical region that consisted of several small states. The kingdom of Italy was created 1861 when all of Italy except Venetia and the Papal State were united. These areas joined the Italian kingdom 1866 and 1871. Because the Italian kingdom first consisted of a smaller territory than the geographical region of Italy are there two figures for the year 1861.
