This essay provides an overall and analytic picture of the military presence in the Napoleonic Milan (1796-1814), the capital city of a vast Italian State. The unpublished archives documentation, also rich in statistical data, allows to reconstruct an overview of the armed forces – military and paramilitary – permanently present intra moenia and the logistics that supported them. It is also proposed a preliminary assessment of the relations between the military world and the urban civil dimension, also in a comparison both with the Milan, as stronghold of previous historical periods (Spanish and Austrian), and with other cities of the same Napoleonic period.

Abstract

This essay provides an overall and analytic picture of the military presence in the Napoleonic Milan (1796-1814), the capital city of a vast Italian State. The unpublished archives documentation, also rich in statistical data, allows to reconstruct an overview of the armed forces – military and paramilitary – permanently present intra moenia and the logistics that supported them. It is also proposed a preliminary assessment of the relations between the military world and the urban civil dimension, also in a comparison both with the Milan, as stronghold of previous historical periods (Spanish and Austrian), and with other cities of the same Napoleonic period.
