“Zealous Whig” unearths the true story of America’s Italian founding father. Filippo Mazzei came to America in 1773 after meeting Benjamin Franklin in London. He became a close friend, collaborator, and next-door neighbor to Thomas Jefferson, and contributed to the Declaration of Independence. Mazzei returned to Europe in 1783 expecting a US consular post, but was disappointed. He died in obscurity in Pisa in 1816.
