We often think of Napoleon Bonaparte as the incredible legislator and war leader, but we tend to forget that he was a prolific patron and instigated many constructions that are anchored in the Parisian landscape. The Arc de Triomphe, the Vendome Column, the Palais de la Bourse, the church of La Madeleine, the building of bridges and piercing of canals. This film tells the story of these megastructures that we owe to Napoleon. How many architects, sculptors, workers, had to be called for these constructions? How to build such imposing sites in the heart of Paris? How long did these construction works last as they were often disturbed by an unstable political context? Why were these changes necessary? What innovations in terms of materials and what technical prowess their constructions engendered? Examine these questions. Let's throw it back to the extraordinary transformations of the First Empire, a precursory work that will be extended and amplified during the Second Empire.
