This pattern celebrates the revolutionary Giuseppe Garibaldi (1807-1882), who led the Risorgimento that broke the shackles of foreign domination and unified Italy.
Having long sailed the world fighting for the liberties of suppressed peoples, the charismatic Garibaldi earned himself a reputation as a master of the sword.
In 1860, Garibaldi raised an army of a thousand volunteers, sailed to Sicily and, marching through the lemon fields, overturned the oppressive Neapolitan rule.
This symbolic and significant victory was the beginning of the formation of Italy and earned Garibaldi a much-celebrated popular legacy.
