GARIBALDI FAMILY MEMORIES PAGE ( last uploaded )

RISORGIMENTO A page taken from the Garibaldi Family Memories Album. In the center: in a band with the words in English, the portrait of Giuseppe Garibaldi, the hero of Palermo, Naples, Milazzo, Marsala, Turno, Galata, surmounted by the motto "Freedom for Italy, Rome or death"; from the band hangs a small bow of red fabric, probably a secular relic, a shred of Garibaldi's shirt; below, a cut-out with the portrait of the general and the tricolor with the words "aid to Garibaldi", an exhortation to support him in the struggle or reference to his promotion and participation in the formation of Mutual Aid Societies throughout the united peninsula. On the sides: portraits of the British vice-consul in Naples in the Kingdom of the Two Sicilies, William Dorant (1784 - 1849) and his wife Mrs. Flora Lambert Dorant, who in 1837 established the first "reading room" in Bourbon Naples, where under virtue of diplomatic privileges it was possible for foreigners to access books and foreign periodical press (otherwise and elsewhere prohibited because considered dangerously liberal), which later became a reference also for local lovers of liberal and anti-Bourbon political ideas. Italy, 19th century
