Associazione Agraria Subalpina
Subalpine Agricultural Association


Founding of the Society
Authority / Notes
1842 - 1866

Giva & Spadoni (2000), p.74, gives the date of approval of the constitution of the Association as 1842, August 25. It also refers to the Association as the Associazione Agraria Subalpina. It should be noted, however, that the name in its first publication, the Gazzetta, is shortened to Associazione Agraria.

Giva & Spadoni (2000), p.74 divides the life of the Association into three periods. The first period, 1842-1848, was the most energetic period of the Association. The second period, 1850-1857, ran from 1850, the date of the reconstitution of the Association to the year of cessation of its Giornale. The third period, 1858-1866, ran from the period of fervor associated with national unity up to the date of the constitution of the official agricultural commisions ("comizi agrari") through the Royal Decree of 1866, December 23, which marked the failure of the attempt by the subalpine Association to nationalize its own structure and to present itself as the representative of the interests of agriculture in a united Italy.

According to Giva & Spadoni (2000), pp.82-83, after the Royal Decree of 1866, the Association merged into the Comizio Agraria di Torino, which had been founded in 1867.
