The Coppet Circle and the Napoleonic Wars in Italy: The Code of Freedom
Louise Stolberg maintained a literary salon in Florence, Italy during the Napoleonic occupation of Italy. She directly patronized Italy’s greatest cultural patriots: authors and artists who espoused a revolutionary rhetoric including, Vittorio Alfieri, Ugo Foscolo, François Xavier Fabre and Antonio Canova. Stolberg’s political analysis within the epistolary genre was always accompanied by such literary and aesthetic references which encoded political events with nationalist literary metaphors. Indeed, Germaine de Staël’s salon in Coppet, Switzerland with which she was associated seems to have drawn up a cultural paradigm, or template, for nationalist independence which created a community of future Italian patriots.
