Between the late 18th and the early 19th century, some adventurers coming from the Italian Peninsula left the Old Continent and took part in the struggle for the emancipation of New Granada. Driven by a variety of reasons, they were involved in the pre-independence uprisings, were enlisted in the ranks of the "Ejército libertador", and participated in the consolidation process of the new republics. Their biographic experience, in a large transatlantic and revolutionary movement, affected the curse of independence of new-grenadine territory and the birth of Gran Colombia.
