Giuseppe La Farina was an influential leader of the Italian Risorgimento. Minister of Cavour, was highly involved in Garibaldi's departure for
Sicily. Ostensibly sent by Cavour to dissuade Garibaldi from going, he
in fact did little of the sort. A nationalist at heart, he was believed
to be one of the few to whom Cavour actually revealed his intentions
regarding the Sicilian campaign and eventual unification. (Text quoted from : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Giuseppe_La_Farina )
