 Giuseppe Garibaldi
On the outbreak of war in 1859 he was placed in command of the Alpine infantry, defeating the Austrians at Casale on the 8th of May, crossing the Ticino on the 23rd of May, and, after a series of victorious fights, liberating Alpine territory as far as the frontier of Tirol.
Their presence put an end to the plan for the invasion of the papal states, and Garibaldi unwillingly issued a decree for the plebiscite which was to sanction the incorporation of the Two Sicilies in the Italian realm.
From the Trentino he returned to Caprera to mature his designs against Rome, which had been evacuated by the French in pursuance of the Franco-Italian convention of the 15th of September 1864.

L’isola di Caprera, pur essendo per molti versi abbastanza simile alle altre isole dell’arcipelago, merita una particolare attenzione per alcuni dettagli che in qualche modo la distinguono dal mondo che la circonda.
All’estremo lembo meridionale di Caprera, la morfologia rupestre ed accidentata relativa al paesaggio granitico è interrotta da una formazione gneissica pressoché pianeggiante o, al più, con bassi rilievi a dolce pendio.
I rilievi operati sull’isola di Caprera, confortati dalle ricerche di laboratorio, hanno infine condotto alla identificazione di un vasto corteo filoniano che, in analogia con gli allineamenti relativi a tutto l’Arcipelago, appare distribuito secondo direttrici essenzialmente meridiane e trasversali, con più larga ed imponente prevalenza delle prime.

 LA MADDALENA, Arcipelago di La Maddalena
Per visitare Caprera si supera il quartiere Moneta, raggiungendo il Passo della Moneta, ponte-diga molto panoramico che unisce le due isole; percorrendo la suggestiva pineta si giunge in breve al Compendio Garibaldino, con la casa Bianca ieri dimora di Giuseppe Garibaldi ed oggi Museo.
La visita a Caprera è ampiamente giustificata anche dalle sue notevoli caratteristiche paesaggistico-ambientali.
Anche la costa nord-occidentale di Caprera offre vari angoli interessanti e solitari, più che altro raggiungibili con imbarcazioni a causa della difficoltà dei sentieri: subito a sud di Punta Galera, la Cala Napoletana e poi la Cala Caprarese, e infine le splendide scogliere fino alle isole degli Italiani che si trovano all'imboccatura di Cala Garibaldi.
