Giovanni Angelo Ossoli (Roma, 17 de enero de 1821Nueva York, 19 de julio de 1850) fue un patriota italiano.

Hijo de Filippo Ossoli y de Maria Anna Cleter, descendiente de la Casa de los Marqueses Ossoli, una familia procedente de Lombardia y establecida en Roma en el 1500, y que más tarde adquirió el feudo de Pietraforte.

Guapo, alto y de escasa cultura pero con los ideales de Giuseppe Mazzini, en 1847 conoció a la periodista y escritora estadounidense Margaret Fuller, con la cual se casó. En Rieti nació el 5 de septiembre de 1848 su hijo Ángelo Eugenio Filippo.

Al comenzar la rebelión que conducirá a la República Romana, Giovanni Ángelo Ossoli es sargento de la Guardia Civica, la cual fue movilizada a principios de 1849. Se alistó en la 2ª Compañía del Primer Batallón y luchó para proteger los muros vaticanos en la defensa de la Urbe de las tropas asediadoras francesas del general Oudinot, ganándose en el campo de batalla el grado de capitán.

Después de la caída de la ciudad, volvió a Rieti con su mujer para recuperar a su hijo que habían dejado allí al cuidado de su nodriza. Posteriormente se refugiaron en Florencia para luego embarcarse en mayo de 1850 desde Livorno hacia Nueva York. Toda la familia murió en el naufragio del barco encallado en los bancos de Fire Island, cerca de Long Island. Sólo el cuerpo del niño fue recuperado.

Margaret Fuller

Sarah Margaret Fuller Ossoli (May 23, 1810 – July 19, 1850), commonly known as Margaret Fuller, was an American journalist, editor, critic, and women's rights advocate associated with the American transcendentalism movement. She was the first full-time American female book reviewer in journalism. Her book Woman in the Nineteenth Century is considered the first major feminist work in the United States.

Born Sarah Margaret Fuller in Cambridge, Massachusetts, she was given a substantial early education by her father, Timothy Fuller. She later had more formal schooling and became a teacher before, in 1839, she began overseeing her Conversations series: classes for women meant to compensate for their lack of access to higher education. She became the first editor of the transcendentalist journal The Dial in 1840, before joining the staff of the New York Tribune under Horace Greeley in 1844. By the time she was in her 30s, Fuller had earned a reputation as the best-read person in New England, male or female, and became the first woman allowed to use the library at Harvard College. Her seminal work, Woman in the Nineteenth Century, was published in 1845. A year later, she was sent to Europe for the Tribune as its first female correspondent. She soon became involved with the revolutions in Italy and allied herself with Giuseppe Mazzini. She had a relationship with Giovanni Ossoli, with whom she had a child. All three members of the family died in a shipwreck off Fire Island, New York, as they were traveling to the United States in 1850. Fuller's body was never recovered.

Fuller was an advocate of women's rights and, in particular, women's education and the right to employment. She also encouraged many other reforms in society, including prison reform and the emancipation of slaves in the United States. Many other advocates for women's rights and feminism, including Susan B. Anthony, cite Fuller as a source of inspiration. Many of her contemporaries, however, were not supportive, including her former friend Harriet Martineau. She said that Fuller was a talker rather than an activist. Shortly after Fuller's death, her importance faded; the editors who prepared her letters to be published, believing her fame would be short-lived, censored or altered much of her work before publication.
