Urbano Rattazzi (ōōrbä´nō rät-tät´tsē), 1808–73, Italian premier (1862, 1867). A leader of the left in the Sardinian parliament, he was briefly (1849) minister of the interior and later held cabinet posts as a strong supporter of Cavour until the two quarreled (1857). Rattazzi was again minister of the interior (1859–60). After the unification of Italy in 1861, he was twice premier; both his resignations as premier arose from trouble with Garibaldi, who attempted to take Rome during Rattazzi's premierships.
