Biagio del Corso

On Thursday, 19 April at 9pm at the Auditorium of Cherasco (Italy) in Via San Pietro 41 is scheduled a public reading of “Biagio del Corso”, a story written by the historian Bruno Taricco about the fictional son of Napoleon Bonaparte, directed and interpreted by Jozef Gjura, accompanied on the classical guitar by Davide Bottini.

It is said that Napoleon had a son in Cherasco: having asked for the company of a woman, the city authorities chose for him the daughter of the pharmacist, a known Jacobin.
The child who would later be born, was baptized as “Biagio del Corso”, under the guardianship of Count Salmatoris, and would later study in Paris, becoming an Imperial Guard Officer, and would fall at the Battle of Waterloo: this apocryphal story can be discovered in an evening with free admission open to all.

The event is organized by the City of Cherasco together with the Cherasco 1631 Association, thanks to the valuable support of the main sponsor, the Bank of Cherasco and with the support of the Cherasco Culture Association, and is part of the exhibition “Ei Fu – Napoleon Bonaparte from Piedmont to Europe (1796 – 1815)” at the Palazzo Salmatoris in Cherasco until June 24 and open to the public with free entrance (10 – 12am  and 2-7pm).
