In Finalborgo the appointment with the history is held

If you want to revisit some modern history, go to Finalborgo. During this last weekend of March, the monumental complex of Santa Caterina, in the heart of the famous Ligurian village, becomes the scene of excellent re-enactments. For the first time, in fact, the last two descendants of Horatio Nelson and Napoleon Bonaparte will meet, the great generals (and sworn enemies) who dictated the fate of Europe between the end of the 1700s and the beginning of the 1800s. of the first of a line of great events that animate the exhibition entitled Periscano tutti i tiranni, scheduled at the cloisters of Santa Caterina in Finalborgo until April 30th.

The great paradox of the story is that, despite having fought with rare determination, the streets of Napoleon and Nelson never crossed paths. The Corsican leader dominated Europe, but it was the admiral of the British fleet that prevented him from invading England in a series of naval battles that repeatedly saw the French on their knees. Nelson revealed a capacity for maneuver, an intuition, a talent for playing on the surprise effect and a courage to put into play the most daring solutions such as to mark the end of the Napoleonic ambitions of universal domination. And his compatriots finished work at Waterloo.

Piazza Garibaldi

The exhibition is organized by the Cultural Association 1795. Many mannequins will wear reproductions of uniforms such as those used by sailors who died at the time in the naval battle. And in the mannequin's hand the real pocket onion watch found on the Finalese seabed. In short, this weekend in Finalborgo is held the appointment with history.
