1874 Bologna insurrection

can anyone point me to information on this event? Bakunin was meant to have taken part in it, and it was some form of a political demonstration "in accordance with Bakunin's view that such actions should be used as a means of awakening the people's interest"

found some info

-150 anarchists set out from Imola hoping to stir up the local peasantry who had recently been involved in agricultural strikes and food riots to capture bologna, but were poorly planned and stopped by the police. The anarchists also wore red and black cockades, the first recorded use of those colours for anarchism.

Not that exciting then.
