Napoleonic Dances, Food and Costumes at Lucca’s Ducal Palace

A beautiful article by Francis Pettit, for english speakers ^_^
Thank you!

From London to Longoio (and Lucca and Beyond) Part Three

Courtesy of my friend Anna Benedetto, who promotes these events, there is a wonderful series of events in Lucca which will be of particular interest to all lovers of matters Napoleonic.

Fans, buffets, quadrilles and cotillons form part of historical re-enactments of the Napoleonic era in a very accessible way without one having to hunt for a suitable costume.

The events take place in Lucca’s Palazzo Ducale the historic centre of the city’s government and the residence of Elisa Bonaparte Baciocchi as well as of Maria Luisa di Borbone, after having been the seat of the Luccan republic for four hundred years.

The events run from 6 March to 3 April, at 5pm to 7 pm, with free admission and take place in the state rooms of the Ducal Palace. It is also possible to attend just one event.
