Alberto da Giussano


Alberto da Giussano

Alberto da Giussano (born in Giussano, Lombardy) was a legendary Guelph warrior during the wars of the Lombard League against Frederick Barbarossa in 12th century. A tradition, probably fabricated by XIV century Milanese chroniclers, attributes him the deed of forming the "Company of Death" that defended the "Carroccio" of the League at the Battle of Legnano.

Italian political party Lega Nord makes use of his myth. The electoral emblem of the party features Alberto with an image inspired by the statue of him erected at Legnano in 1900. Also the infantry brigade "Legnano " of the Italian Army used the image of this statue as symbol.
