Napoleone Colajanni (1847-1921), Sicilian author and politician, fought under Garibaldi in Sicily and at Aspromonte. After earning a medical degree he took up the study of social science, and in 1892 was appointed professor of statistics in the university of Palermo. "He published many books and essays on social and political problems, and exposed the fallacious and unscientific theories of Lombroso and Ferri on criminology...He began his public career as a municipal councellor in his native town (Castrogiovanni) in 1872; in 1882 he was elected provincial councilor and in 1890 deputy for the same place. In Parliament he sat as a Republican and showed Socialist tendencies." - Encyclopaedia Britannica (1922).
