The Gazette de Marengo has returned

  • di

The Gazette de Marengo has landed on its native soil: the original eight-page sheet already released on Friday 9 February 1810 was transferred by the anonymous collector to the director Efrem Bovo. The ‘ad personam” gift came to the current director of the Reformed paper to communicate the dynamism spread to the cultural center of Marengo and, thus, promote beauty: today the site already engraved by the Great Bataille (June 14, 1800) and the Napoleonic triumph is lapped by events (from talk to bel canto, from reenacting to restyling to symbols) to convey the great story and involve the citizens to increase virtuous social practices. The cosmic breath emerges from the articles published in the authentic magazine and structured by the choice of short stories written to inform the reader on the domestic (from Paris to the department of Marengo) and foreign (China, Germany, Illyrian Provinces, Kingdom of Naples, Spain) political situation.
The Gazette de Marengo was the first Alexandrian newspaper printed from 2 January 1810 to 30 June 1814: the French language was chosen to write the news of politics, variety, chronicle, science, dissemination of laws and decrees on the pro-government sheet, first twice a week and then three times a week, promoted by private entrepreneurship. The French printer Victor Alauzet arrived at the Fraschéta with Napoleon started the printing business then sold to the proto Luigi Capriolo recruited by the only Alexandrian printer. The patent of authorized printer (November 7, 1811) to Luigi Capriolo and to Salvatore Rossi from the Prefect to the Department of Marengo abolished the exclusive privilege and encouraged Luigi Capriolo to promote the request to exhibit the ”Regie Armi” to the printing works and on the letterhead to return the prestige to the company.
