Alessandro was a leader in the struggle for Italian Unification and Independence. Alongside, is a medal he received from the Garibaldi regine for his part in thwarting a German Oil Tanker from infiltrating the Island of Murano during WWII. The violators were captured without bloodshed and released shortly thereafter. It is said that one of the Germans was so thankful to Alessandro, that he gifted him with a pistol as a memoir.
