It was the last residence of Giuseppe Garibaldi, one of the main heroes of Italian unification in the 19th century. Today, Garibaldi’s House is not just a museum, but a true shrine of memories that captures the essence of the struggle for Italian independence.

Garibaldi, famous for his military achievements and his commitment to the cause of national unity, chose Caprera as his base and home for the last years of his life. Here he lived from 1856 until his death in 1882. 

Garibaldi’s House was where the hero spent his days, planning his exploits and receiving visits from Italian politicians and patriots. 

The museum offers a valuable opportunity to understand the history of Italian unity and the importance of Garibaldi’s historical figure. Every corner of the house is a journey into the past: personal items, photographs and period documents tell the story of the hero’s life.

Visitors can explore the rooms where Garibaldi used to live, admire the original furnishings, and discover the collection of his personal items, including military uniforms, weapons, and autographed letters. 

Garibaldi’s House is a place of great symbolic importance to all Italians, representing the courage and determination of those who fought to make the country one sovereign nation. 

Garibaldi’s House continues to be an attraction for all who wish to honor Italy’s unification heritage and better understand its glorious past.
