Giuseppe Ferrari (1811-1976) to Alessandro Repetti (1822-1890) Paris, 1851[?]
Giuseppe Ferrari was an Italian politician, philosopher and historian. He was a democrat and a member of the Italian Parliament from 1860 to 1876. From 1859 he participated actively in the struggle for Italian unification.
Ferrari's letter is addressed to the publisher Alessandro Repetti. Like other authors who were working during the Risorgimento, Ferrari had to send his writings to a publishing house Tipografia Elvetica in Switzerland. As had Vincenzo Gioberti, Ferrari expressed anxiety regarding the publication of his book, Opuscoli politici e letterari ora per la prima volta tradotti, (1852).
I am now answering to Daelli in Turin […] Please tell him that I am ready to print the Opuscoli, and if things can be arranged properly […] we would be able to start immediately. […] I also went to see Hunbert and had lunch with him in prison: poor young man, he still has a trial that awaits him and a huge fine that is ruining him […].
Farewell, all yours,
Ferrari 17, rue Meryon[?]
