Not having collapsed entirely also, the same been decided to reconstruct the basilica really in the area turned to commercial zone. Such move toward the inside contributed to definitely fix the economic axle of the city around the actual Plaza of the People that became the new commercial hinge and the passage forced for Comiso, terranova and Scoglitti.

In the final part of the epoch borbonica continues the conquest of the territory with the amplification of the crops to vineyard and puts on hand to the construction of the road axle for Comiso, the roadway it is modernized for Scoglitti, ponds and swamps are reclaim to the outskirtses while the historical center embellishes him around the principal plaza.

The first ones of the 800 also see to Victoria the affirmation conscious of the agrarian middle class that starts to abandon entirely the other crops to devote himself/herself/themselves to the vineyard.

The new demands of numerous families of land owners that recognize great possibilities of growth and development in the development of the vineyard and they want therefore a free market, meets him with the political antiliberista and colonial of the Borbonis and also in our mature City a feeling of hostility and a desire of independence from Naples that it will animate the 48 motions.

This brief experience of self-government will give towns to the small nobility and the middle class the conscience of his/her own role to the guide of the city.

Subsequently to Garibaldi's unloading in Sicily and to the unification of the Kingdom of Italy, however, nobility and middle class break him in two creating a right conservative driven by the great families of land owners and the left led by Rosary Chancellors in whose ideal of moderate progress the small land owners are recognized, the artisans, the dealers, the professionals of the armature of the vineyard.

The fascist ventennio saw to Victoria the clandestine action of anarchists, socialist and of numerous communists that succeeded in holding the opposition lives to the regime.  

According to the testimonies of the epoch, the City seems dam in herself and in its countries and culturally expresses few, the schools are few and for few and the svoltÓ it will happen in 1943 after the unloading of the allied troops and the return to the liberty.   

With the first elections, the first party of the City becomes the PCI in which the votes of the mass of laborers flow, legionaries, artisans, small dealers, while the small and middle land owners him riconsocono in the DC and the big owners in the PLI and in the right generally.   

In the fifties, in the battles for the economic development, the conquest of the earth and the sanitary assistance, the new managing class of the City consolidates him.    

They were years of great social clashes and the oppositions of the cold war they made him also feel to Victoria.    

Clashes of plaza, strikes with struggles were melted for the emancipation and the social and economic development of the City, driven by the left.  

The wine's crisis in that years provoked a thick unemployment eemigrazione but already at the end of the years 50 the horticulture to open field is a new subject reality however to the whims of the seasons.
