Description

Count Giuseppe Primoli, who was a descendent of Napoleon, decided to open the Napoleonic Museum in 1927 to showcase his impressive collection of art and Napoleonic memorabilia, which were housed on the ground floor of his palace. The count wanted to document the deep relationship that tied the Bonaparte family with Rome after the French occupation of the city. Through major donations and wise purchases of antiquities, Giuseppe Primoli created this fine example of a house-museum for all of Rome to enjoy.
