(Joseph Garibaldi at birth), born 4 July, 1807 in Nice (French Empire), died 2 June, 1882 in Caprera (Kingdom of Italy), was an Italian general, politician and patriot. He is considered, with Camillo Cavour, Victor Emmanuel II and Giuseppe Mazzini, as one of Italy's "fathers of the fatherland".
Garibaldi is a fundamental character of the Italian Risorgimento, since he personally commanded and fought in many military campaigns that led eventually to the formation of unified Italy. He generally tried to act on behalf of a legitimate power, which does not make him exactly a revolutionary: for example, he was appointed general by the provisional government of Milan in 1848, General of the Roman Republic in 1849 by the Minister of War, and led the Expedition of the Thousand on behalf and with the consent of Victor Emmanuel II.
It is dubbed as the "Hero of Two Worlds" because of his military enterprises which he conducted in both South America and Europe. These earned him a considerable reputation both in Italy and abroad. This is also due to the exceptional international media coverage that he received at the time, and recounted, sometimes romantic, his epic. The greatest intellectuals of his time, particularly French, as Victor Hugo, Alexandre Dumas, George Sand showed him their admiration. The United Kingdom and the United States helped him a great deal, offering him in difficult circumstances their financial and military support.
Republican, he puts his ideas in brackets, recognizing the royal authority of Charles Albert and Victor Emmanuel II, the backbone of the action towards unity. He opposes his conduct to Mazzini although it was one of his followers at the beginning of his political life. The expedition of the Thousand will highlight the item's action: he conquered the southern peninsula and gave it to Victor Emmanuel II, making him king of Italy. His last fight for Rome to integrate into the kingdom of Italy ended with a fiasco. The monarchy entrusted the conquest of Rome to others.
Garibaldi is a myth which nonetheless during his lifetime was also heavily criticized, above all by the reactionary and the clerical, the anti-Republican and the anti-
"I offer neither pay, nor quaters, nor food, I offer only hunger, thirst, forced marches, battles and death. Let him who loves the country with his heart, and not merely with his lips, follow me" Giuseppe Garibaldi.
