Despite a remote rural birth, in a small Sicilian town still not easily accessible, Capuana was to become a figure truly representative of Italian culture in the second half of the nineteenth century. He observed Garibaldi's progress in Sicily, composing a heroic verse drama in honour of it, and then moved to Florence, Italy's new capital, after Unification.
