An imege of Garibaldi Bay on Caprera Island, La Maddalena Archipelago, on north eastern Sardinia.
Giuseppe Garibaldi(July 4, 1807 – June 2, 1882) was an Italian general and politician.
He is considered, with Camillo Cavour, Victor Emmanuel II and Giuseppe Mazzini, as one of Italy's "fathers of the fatherland".
Garibaldi spent much of his late years in Caprera.
He bought the island in 1855 and died there in 1882.
He planted the first trees of the blooming pinewood which covers the island today.
A century after Garibaldi's death the island was freed from the numerous existing military restrictions and is now completely open to the public.
His house is now a museum and a memorial chapel and the island itself is a national monument.
