On the anniversary of the landing of the famous Mille 11 May 1860 Marsala remembers the beginning of the Risorgimento in Sicily with a series of initiatives, which have their climax in the re-enactment, strictly made with period costumes, on the 11th May with the landing of the Thousand with ships Piemonte and Lombardo near the port of Marsala, on the so-called "dock of the Thousand".
Marsala is particularly linked not only to the figure of Garibaldi, but in all the events of the Risorgimento, because it represents the starting point of the Risorgimento, which led to the unification of Italy.
Much of the city toponymy bears clear evidence of this important episode in the second half of the nineteenth century (eg: via Garibaldi, Via Nino Bixio, Fourth Street, via the Landing, Piazza Piemonte and Lombardo).
In the days of the events of Garibaldi you can visit inside the monumental complex San Pietro, the Garibaldi Museum, which is a permanent exhibition of memorabilia from the Risorgimento period. Inside it was reconstructed in detail, a fascinating history and artistic that includes costumes, weapons of Mille, original documents, a rich photographic archive and even a chair in damask on which rested after Garibaldi Landing Marsala.
After crossing the main hall of the museum leads to the room dedicated to the Thousand and Mito, where there are portraits, paintings, photos and prints depicting the faces of men and boys that marrying the spirit of the Renaissance gave a major contribution to the process of national unification.
