Neo-Bourbonism, as a narrative that describe the Italian unification process as the forced annexation of the South of Italy, has been strongly spreading in last years, especially after the 150th anniversary of the Italian unification. These partial narratives have found a fertile ground among the new medias, being able to reach a great number of users and feeding hate and frustration during a period characterized by the economic crisis. This contribution aims at analysing the development of the borbonic historiography and how it has spread through the Web in the form of fake news.
