Biography   Francesco Lojacono


Francesco Lojacono was born in Sicily in 1838.  He trained initially with his father Luigi and the history painter Salvatore Lo Forte (1809-1885).  In 1856 he moved to Naples to study under Nicola Palizzi (1820-1870), having been awarded a gold medal for a small landscape that he exhibited in Palermo.

At the outbreak of the revolution in 1860 Lojacono returned to Sicily and joined Garibaldi's Spedizione dei Mille (The Expedition of the Thousand), a corps of volunteers that assembled with the intention of conquering the Kingdom of the Two Sicilies which was under Bourbon rule.   In 1862 he was one of the contingent that marched on Rome, but was arrested at the subsequent battle of Aspromonte.    ...  Displaying 750 of 1587 characters.
