Category: Edition 1994

A storm shatters in a cove of an island Piccolo, the son of the commander of a fishing boat, and the little dog Spazzola. Determined to find his father and two older brothers, sure as it is that winds and sea have made them shipwreck on the same coasts, Piccolo meets a very old man who wears a poncho and a big straw hat. The island is Caprera and the old man, who lives in solitude surrounded by four animals (the Quarto horse, the  Radetzky cat, the bizarre goat Caprera and Piedmont, a Brazilian parrot), tells of having met Garibaldi.
