Giuseppe Mazzini (1805–1872)

Mazzini, Giuseppe (mät-sē’nē). An Italian patriot; born at Genoa, June 22, 1805; died at Pisa, March 10, 1872. Upon the fall of the Revolutionary government of 1848, in Rome, Mazzini fled to Switzerland, and from there was driven to England. He was concerned in the revolutionary movements of 1852, 1853, and 1857, and so on down to the occupation of Rome in 1870. He wrote much in English and French, and his essays on affairs and criticisms on great writers are eloquent and discerning. His ‘Memoirs’ were printed in 1875. ‘Complete Works,’ 18 vols., 1861–91.
