Il Dépôt Général de la Guerre e la cartografia italiana nelle guerre della Rivoluzione e dell’Impero
Abstract. Despite the great development that scientific studies on the Napoleonic cartography of Italy have had since the 1980s, we are still far from having an overview like the ‘interpretative’ Atlas designed twenty years ago by Anne Godlewska. This study aims to contribute to a first, non-exhaustive, list of the main cartographic campaigns carried out in Italy by French military geographers during the wars of French Revolution and Empire. The reader is invited to consider the particular aims and style of the new Italian cartography produced by the French Dépôt général de la Guerre as well as by the topographic offices of Milan and Naples.
