The annexation of Venetian Slovenia to Italy in 1866 represents the beginning of four interwined processes which in particular manner determine political processes within the Slovene minority in the province of Udine.These processes can bi outlined in the following points: 1.the process of assimilation, influencing the exeptional reserve in expressing the Slovene ethnic identity in public; 2.the process of building up a specific relation between the national in the ''''ethnic'''', and the national in the state sense,which is reflected in the conception of ''''split''''personalities; the implementation of this concept greately influenced the attitude of the Italian State towards Slovene minoriry in the province of Udine, as well as the shaping of national identity within the minority itself; 3.radical reduction of media of ethnic socialization in the essence merely comprise the family,autochthonous village surroundings, and above all the church; only in the 1950s these were gradually joined by others (mass media, cultural societies,political organizations,and finaly the school.The longlasting intertwining of above all the first three factors not only left traces in peoples consciousness, but also greatly affected the part of political culture which is deemed political behaviour; 4.migration processes with a distinctly emphasized emigration line as an essential part of (non)development. On the one hand these processes lead (in their most drastic variant) to a gradual bringing into line of the Slovene ethnic and official state border; on the other hand,migrants have proved to be extremely important bearers of progress of this region in cases where there exist an entire migrational current or migrational chain.
