I created this illustration for an organization celebrating the 150th Anniversary of the Unification of Italy. Hard to believe that this country is actually younger than the USA, Italy became a Republic just a bit over 60 years ago. Before that it was a bunch of smaller independent nations that Garibaldi and his vision of a united Italy realized in 1861. The picture represents Giuseppe Garibaldi, also called the Hero of the Two Worlds, is shaking had with King Vittorio Emanuele II to symbolize the achievement of the Unification.
