Until the 25th of October the Museo Napoleonico hosts the exhibition “Waiting for the emperor” to narrate Napoleon’s Rome between 1809 and 1814.



“Waiting for the emperor” until October 25 at Museo Napoleonico: a journey into the past, during the years of Napoleonic Rome. 50 works from Museo Napoleonico and Palazzo Braschi that tell the face of the eternal city between 1809 and 1814, conquered by the French and ready to welcome an emperor who will never arrive.

The exhibition is divided into four sections: Napoleon’s Rome, Roman celebrations for the birth of the King of Rome, archaeological excavations and the face of the city.

Furthermore, the exhibition itinerary includes a series of monumental projects that should have been part of the new imperial Rome, such as bridges, cemeteries, statues and archaeological excavations, as well as urban renewal projects for large areas, like the arrangement of the banks of the Tiber and Pincio and Campidoglio promenades.

These are huge sheets with a great visual impact, treated in detail and never exhibited before, which testify to the great creative effervescence of the time by the French, whose aim was to modernize and secularize the city, enhancing its artistic, historical and cultural heritage.
