Starting from Lilti’s studies on celebrity, the author explores the “making” of Napoleon’s political celebrity.

The birth of the myth of Napoleon is not only a relevant case that allows us to observe the mechanisms of celebrity, but it appears as a fundamental turning point for political communication. The global dimension of the Napoleonic phenomenon invites us not to limit ourselves to the thematic description of the intellectual processes underlying the elaboration of this imaginary, but to observe it from a spatial point of view and to lay the foundations for the reconstruction of networks of power and communication, in which there is a "contagious" exchange of information between different media and publics and the development of a new language.

Abstract

Starting from Lilti’s studies on celebrity, the author explores the “making” of Napoleon’s political celebrity. If Lilt’is attention to Bonaparte is focused on post-1821 and French sources, the author wonders how starting from 1796 (and not only in France) Napoleon built (and around him was built) a new and powerful communication. The birth of the myth of Napoleon is not only a relevant case that allows us to observe the mechanisms of celebrity, but it appears as a fundamental turning point for political communication. The global dimension of the Napoleonic phenomenon invites us not to limit ourselves to the thematic description of the intellectual processes underlying the elaboration of this imaginary, but to observe it from a spatial point of view and to lay the foundations for the reconstruction of networks of power and communication, in which there is a "contagious" exchange of information between different media and publics and the development of a new language.
