A partisan journeys to Genoa to get Garibaldi's help liberating Sicily from Bourbon mercenaries.

Made during Mussolini's rule to spur patriotism, it seems similar to the movies Hollywood made in the early 1940's to raise support for America European fight, with sympathetic peasants and cruel mercenaries.

Nicely done, but clearly not a 'cast of thousands' movie.
