[3] – : The Sicilian Judge Nicolò Crescimanno (1803-1885) was appointed Professor of International Law at the University of Malta, following the retirement of Ferdinand Caruana Dingli in 1869.  Professor Nicolò Crescimanno “studied law within the Faculty of Law at the University of Palermo. He was destined to reach the highest echelons of the Sicilian judicature, becoming judge in Palermo, Messina and Catania. He was appointed President of the Gran Corte Civile of Cosenza, President of the Gran Corte Criminale of Trapani, and Procuratore Regio (King’s Crown Advocate) to the Criminal and Civil Courts of Trapani. King Ferdinand himself described him as ‘a jewel’ among his Magistrates. He had one daughter, Maddalena, from his first marriage with Teresa Gennusa, and another eight children from his second wife Vincenza Girgenti.    Notwithstanding his distinguished career in his motherland, he was above all a patriot who fled from the political and religious turmoil that had raged the Italian peninsula for decades. As soon as the new government of King Vittorio Emmanuele came to power, Nicolò sought asylum in a favourite place of refuge – the British fortress-colony of Malta. When he was already in his 50s, he and his wife and their seven children trailed behind his first cousin, Judge Giacomo San Filippo who had married his daughter Maddalena, by boarding a ship ‘Elettrico’ en route to Malta.    After he set foot in Malta, King Vittorio Emmanuele’s Ministers invited him to return to Sicily and continue his work over there, but he refused. He was also asked to represent his compatriots in the new Italian Parliament, but he did not accept either. In 1862, he wrote to King Francesco asking him to be absolved of his loyalties as he was no longer able to perform the duties he had sworn to carry out. He received the reply which liberated him from his oath of allegiance in due course.” From: Raymond Mangion, ‘Professors who Taught International Law within the Faculty of Laws, University of Malta’, in Serving the Rule of International Law: Essays in Honour of Professor David Joseph Attard, ed. by Norman A.
