The coronation of Napoleon as King of Italy, which took place in Milan in 1805, is a form of political communication that uses the languages and symbolic codes of representation, which concern space, time and action. It manifests the public affirmation of a new order of powers and the visibility of the Emperor in the capital of the Kingdom of Italy. Napoleon's ministers constructed the ceremony by interweaving political and religious rituals, with the aim of highlighting the relationship between imperial power and the Church of Rome. The coronation was therefore an essential stage in the process of Napoleon's sacralisation of power.

Abstract

The coronation of Napoleon as King of Italy, which took place in Milan in 1805, is a form of political communication that uses the languages and symbolic codes of representation, which concern space, time and action. It manifests the public affirmation of a new order of powers and the visibility of the Emperor in the capital of the Kingdom of Italy. Napoleon's ministers constructed the ceremony by interweaving political and religious rituals, with the aim of highlighting the relationship between imperial power and the Church of Rome. The coronation was therefore an essential stage in the process of Napoleon's sacralisation of power.
