(a) Giuseppe Garibaldi was one of the most celebrated Italian freedom fighters. He came from a family engaged in coastal trade. He was a sailor in the Merchant Navy.
In 1833, inspired by Mazzini’s view he joined the Young Italy Movement and participated in a republican uprising in Piedmont in 1834.
However, the uprising was suppressed and Garibaldi had to flee to South America. There he lived in exile till 1848.
