Özet

Italy frequently had obliged to change its policy against Ottoman Empire after setting up the national unity until the Balkan War. The setting up of Italy's political unity in a very late date like 1870 caused it to be late in colonialism. But United Italy was emerging as a new global power. Even if this power was not sufficient, it accelerated the developments changing the balances. In a short time, Italy had become a considered country in the seeking of colonialism after Germany. Italy with Germany forced other western states to follow new strategies and began the first colonial enterprise with Ethiopia, but this independent country has not been able to become colonize. Italy undertook to gain a place in European politics with the Treaty of Triple Alliance in 1882. It began looking for the spreading ways in North Africa and the Balkans. In this article, I focus on that how Italy easily acquired the support of European states through its politics of territory of Ottoman Empire and process of attaining its objective.
