Mazzini and Brazil*

Show Summary Details


This chapter concentrates on the ‘Mazzinian moment’ in Brazil, the six years from 1835 to 1840 in which a small group of Italian admirers of Mazzini – notably Garibaldi – was active both in Rio de Janeiro and Rio Grande do Sul. The later influence of Mazzini in Brazil, especially on the great wave of Italian immigrants who arrived in the country between 1870 and 1914, was less direct, mixed with ideas from other sources such as the anarchism of Bakunin. It is Garibaldi rather than Mazzini who remains a hero in Brazil.

Keywords: Mazzinian moment; Garibaldi; Italian immigrants; anarchism; Bakunin
