Author: Philippe Daverio
Description: As a cultural anthropologist, as he liked to call himself, Daverio faces and portrays the controversial character of Napoleon not as a historian or as a biographer, but from several points of view: the cultural tradition of the leaders in power in France (kings, generals or presidents), the family environment and the Mediterranean roots, the attitude and skills of the communicator, the thought on Europe. A book on which the author worked tenaciously in the year before his death and to which he cared a lot, as a great lover of the man and the historical figure, on which he had returned several times with studies, writings and oral interventions. As in all his studies, Philippe Daverio poses on the stories of history, of art and culture his curious eye, free from prejudices and academic constraints, and gives us a lively, multifaceted, unprecedented and at times irreverent portrait of "his" Napoleon, trying to enter the mind of man, in his relationships with the family of origin and Italian roots, in his thought on art and daily life.
