The lazaretto located in the port of Nice, in contrast to other similar institutions in southern Europe examined or not in this volume, progressively lost its importance as a tool of public health during the first half of the nineteenth century. This occurred in parallel with and actually reflected the geopolitical shifts of the town and its neighbouring territory, then still located on the “Italian” side on the French-Sardinian border. This chapter traces the gradual transformations that took place in the political, economic and sanitary interests of the port authorities, which resulted in the progressive relaxation of quarantine for arrivals from French ports, in contrast with more stringent measures for ships arriving from the Italian peninsula, and which in turn revealed and intensified an alignment with French liberal politics and free-trade commerce. The lazaretto of Nice did not shield the town against French annexationism, but rather paved the way for it.
