Luigi Cremona (1830-1903) is unanimously considered to be the man who laid the foundations of the prestigious Italian school of Algebraic Geometry. In this paper we draw attention to the "Legato Itala Cremona Cozzolino", which was given to the library of the Mazzini Institute, Genoa, Italy, by Cremona's daughter, Itala, probably in 1939. This legacy, which contains over 6000 documents, mainly consisting of Cremona's correspondence with scientific and institutional Italian interlocutors, can help us to understand the connections between the development of Italian mathematics in the second half of the XIX century and the main political issues of Italian history.
