Norman Sicily became an attraction for artists, scientists and artisans, and a landmark in Europe for its tolerance, justice and culture. It was a powerful and multi-ethnic society, were Greeks, Arabs, Christians, Jews and Normans lived together, thriving. After a century, the crown of Sicily passed to the German Hohenstaufen Dynasty, then to the crown of Aragon, to the House of Savoy, the Austrian Habsburg Dynasty, and finally to the Spanish prince Charles Bourbon. In 1860 the Italian patriot Giuseppe Garibaldi landed in Sicily with 1000 men. The Expedition of the Thousand was the beginning of Italian Risorgimento, that will lead to the unification of the country. Italy was born, but this is another story.
