Who was Gabriele Rossetti?

Gabriele Pasquale Giuseppe Rossetti was an Italian poet and scholar who emigrated to England.

Born in Vasto in the Kingdom of the Two Sicilies, the original family of his ancestors was Della Guardia. Since many members of the Della Guardia family had red hair, they were given the nickname Rossetti approximately four generations before Gabriele's birth. Rossetti's support for Italian revolutionary nationalism forced him into political exile in 1821.
