We go over Napoleon's invasion of Italy again, this time focusing on his administrative and political actions. Italians of the 19th century would see politics and governments differently than Italians of the 18th century, because between 1797 and 1815 Napoleon would reshape Italy's political consciousness. He got started quickly, as in just 2 years he had already upended Northern Italy.
