Napoleon - Journal of the exhibition
Napoleon's destiny was exceptional, starting from a modest house in Corsica and leading his armies to the four corners of Europe before ending up in exile on Saint Helena.
Even today, the Bonaparte Empire continues to raise questions: Waterloo remains the battle most evoked by painters, novelists and historians, and the figure of Napoleon remains central in literature and cinema.
Written by Xavier Mauduit, this journal accompanies the spectacular exhibition to be held at La Villette in 2021.
