Odoardo Fano (1835-1904), of a Genoese Jewish family, an accountant, a Garibaldian and a militant of the Cacciatori delle Alpi (in some interesting letters to his brother he tells of his adventure in Garibaldi), fights the brigands in the south; in his will, where he asks for lay funerals and that his body "is dissected for the sole benefit of science and then cremated", appoints the Ospedale Maggiore as universal heir, entrusting the execution of the portrait to Angelo Morbelli.
