poster Napoleon: In the Name of Art (Giovanni Piscaglia, IT 2021)
Napoleon Bonaparte (1769-1821) appreciated the value of art from a young age, and was fascinated by its beauty. He always combined his plans for the military conquest of whole areas of the world with the acquisition, study, conservation and systematisation of art. He brought works of art from all over the world to France in the conviction that art and culture should be accessible to all.
