SILVIO PELLICO
(1789-1854)

Patriota italiano. Fu condannato a vent’anni di carcere, ma fu graziato a metà della pena. Su questa esperienza scrisse un grandissimo libro: Le mie prigioni.

Pellico, a national hero in Italy, was the leader of the first group of revolutionaries who challenged the authority of the ruling elite. He narrowly escaped execution and (…) inspired patriots seeking Italy’s freedom from the foreign yoke.
