Also Italy in its brief history [from the declaration of the Kingdom in 1861] has seen several visible territorial change.

In the moment of the proclamation of the kingdom all North East was still under Austrian domain and Rome wasn't in Italy [!], it was still in the State of the Church [surviving with a certain French diplomatic support].

From that moment on, until 1919 Italy has seen its territory enlarging and expanding, up to the maximum when also Istria and a part of Dalmatia was in Italy. Take a look at this wikipage: Evoluzione territoriale dell'Italia - Wikipedia it's in Italian, but there are the maps.
