A collection of memories of the Bonaparte Family donated to the city of Rome. The collection is aimed to document the close relationship between the Bonaparte’s and Rome. These ties were established by force of arms in 1808, after the French occupation of Rome. The city in 1811 was named "and imperial free city", destined to be ruled by Napoleon's son who was given, even before birth, the title of King of Rome.
Later, after the fall of the Empire, almost all members of the Bonaparte family sought asylum to Pope Pius VII and settled in Rome: the mother Letizia Ramolino, the brothers Louis and Jerome and napoleon’s sister, Pauline.
