Garibaldi Made In Nissa
Documentary 55mn. 2008
For most of us, the name "Garibaldi" doesn't mean much any more. But in fact, many of the larger cities of our western world have at least an avenue, a square, or a monument named in his honor. Garibaldi is a familiar name, but his story is still little known.
This international warrior for justice and freedom
was active in numerous struggles in South America as well as in Europe.
But above all, he is one of main contributors to Italy’s becoming
a united country.
Like him, I was born in Nice, and for me, this account
of Garibaldi's life is also an opportunity to investigate Nice’s
cultural and political heritage.
