Margaret Fuller was an American feminist writer and literary critic; in addition to writing a solid body of critical reviews and essays, she became active in various social reform movements. Traveling to Italy in 1847, Margaret Fuller met Giovanni Angelo, the Marchese d'Ossoli; they became lovers, had a son in 1848 and married the next year at the time of the Roman revolution, in which they were involved, supporting Giovanni Mazzini. During the Roman Republic, Margaret Fuller met Cristina di Belgiojoso, who titled her nurses and services' coordinator at Ospedale San Giovanni Calibita - Fatebenefratelli, Rome (Tiber Island). So she worked at both, in that hospital and in the Palazzo del Quirinale, available for wounded. At the beginning of 1850, she and her husband sailed for the United States but the ship ran aground in a storm off Fire Island, New York, and their bodies were never found1.
