Garibaldi's Jeans 

or how Celestine won her battle

Sicily, May 1860
After Marsala
Night. A black night that weighed on the shoulders like a soaking wet coat.
Giuseppe was following his father'a irregular footstep along a rocky path. far away, flashes of light and the occasional explosion showed that the battle was continuing, down there on the plain.

Giuseppe, whose nickname was pinin, followed him closely. He was wearing a three-coloured rosette on his arm, and carrying a by now empty rucksack and a bag full of bandages and alcohol. he was twelve years old. he had neither a pistol, nor a musket. No weapons for the General's children, but a lot of work. In those strange days, since they had landed at marsala, Pinin had been run off his feet delivering orders, cleaning mud from the officer's boots, treating slight injuries, taking medicine around. noe, with his legs rubbery from fatigue and eyes puffy from sleep, he was following his father. They were going into the night, his father in front, with his surgeon's bag over his shoulder. <<Look... down there... a light...>>
