Italian legendary heavy metallers SCALA MERCALLI, active since 1992, have released their new video dedicated to Anita (Ana Maria de Jesus Ribeiro da Silva) on March 26, the anniversary of the wedding with Giuseppe Garibaldi in Montevideo in 1842.
A man with whom she shared not only a great love, but also her battles for freedom both in Latin America and in Italy, until the day in which she died in his arms because of a strong fever, at the age of 28, after having given birth to three children and pregnant with the 4th, and chased by the foreign armies that occupied the peninsula in 1849.
Unaware that our country obtained freedom and unity 12 years later, and that monuments were erected in her memory both in Italy and in Brazil, her homeland.
The band declares: “This song is dedicated to Anita and her incredible courage, but also to all the women who bravely fought like her for the freedom and unity of Italy, like the men with whom they shared the same sacrifices in life and on the battlefield.”
Furthermore, SCALA MERCALLI are pleased to announce that the band has been included and mentioned in the new book on the Italian Risorgimento “The excluded” by Patrizia Figini, to whom we offer our heartfelt thanks. A book the band highly recommends!
