Garibaldi letters to 'Mille' chaplain found


Trapani, September 16 - Three letters by
Risorgimento hero Giuseppe Garibaldi to the chaplain of the
legendary 'Mille' expedition that won Sicily for the burgeoning
state of Italy in 1860 have been found among a trove of
documents left by a Sicilian historian and composer.
The letters were written 6-10 years after the key event in
Italy's unification.
In them, Garibaldi urged Friar Giovanni Pantaleo to try to
muster some support for unification - which led the pope to
'excommunicate' the State born in 1871 - among Catholic Church
figures in Sicily.
