Quotes

"Italy has awaited this since 1866 her truly national war, in order to feel unified at last, renewed by the unanimous action and identical sacrifice of all her sons. Today, while Italy still wavers before the necessity imposed by history, the name of Garibaldi, resanctified by blood, rises again to warn her that she will not be able to defeat the revolution save by fighting and winning her national war." "Federzoni, 1915, at memorial services being held for a relative of Italian national hero Giuseppe Garibaldi, who died on the battlefield in France, fighting for the French army against the invading German army."
