RISORGIMENTO Colomba Antonietti, (1826 -1849) Italian patriot, married Count Luigi Porzi (against the opinion of the families, also hero of the Risorgimento), lieutenant of the papal troops; they moved from the hometown of Foligno to Rome. In 1848-1849 the husband joined the Roman Republic. Dove, to fight at her side, renounced her femininity by dressing the uniform of bersagliere. He fought the Bourbon troops in the Battle of Velletri (18 - 19 May 1849) and Palestrina, demonstrating courage, valor and intelligence, so much so that he deserved the eulogy of Giuseppe Garibaldi. He fought at Porta San Pancrazio in Rome, where he died under the fire of the French artillery, in defense of the Roman Republic. In the cartouche of the commemorative press we read: Foligno - portrait of Colomba Antonietti - died at the siege of Rome, 1849.
