GIUSEPPE GARIBALDI (1807-1882) Piece signed "G. Garibaldi" Naples 14 September 1860

half page in-4. In French. Lease sent by Garibaldi to Dumas, the day after his arrival at the Chiatamone Palace. Garibaldi, who had just conquered southern Italy, rewarded Dumas for his fervent support by appointing him curator of the museums of Naples and director of the Pompeii excavations, with a functional flat in the Chiatamone palace. This decision caused a great scandal in Naples.
