La Grande Halle de la Villette accueille, du 14 avril au 19 septembre 2021, l'exposition Napoléon à l'occasion du bicentenaire de sa mort.

Un événement exceptionnel qui met en en lumière ce grand chef de guerre et d'état qui a construit la France d’aujourd’hui et qui fascine encore le monde entier. Un parcours chronologique dévoile la vie de Napoléon Bonaparte de ses débuts au collège militaire de Brienne, à ses campagnes victorieuses d'Italie et d'Egypte en passant par son sacre, ses échecs et son déclin et celui de son empire. Il évoque également les facettes plus intimes de ce personnage mythique, ses unions avec Joséphine puis Marie-Louise et son héritier titré dès sa naissance "roi de Rome". En espérant que la rétrospective qui suit saura vous faire patienter l'arrivée du reportage de l'exposition Napoléon de la Grande Halle de la Villette ...

Carnet de Vol de Natacha

Emma, a young woman who is not yet 18 years

old, packs up her belongings and prepares to

leave the convent to marry the man her farmer

father has arranged as her husband: country

doctor Charles Bovary. However, she becomes

bored and miserable in the small, provincial

town of Yonville. She spends most of her time

alone, reading or wandering in the garden while

Charles tends to patients. Even when he is home,

Emma feels bored or neglected by Charles.

Emma longs for more — excitement, passion, status, and love. She shows restraint at first, when smitten law clerk Leon Dupuis skittishly professes his affections for her. However, she is intrigued by the dashing Marquis, who makes more overt advances. Their affair emboldens her as she believes it gives her glimpse of the good life. She spends money she does not have on lavish dresses and decorations from the obsequious dry-goods dealer Monsieur Lheureux, who is all too happy to continue extending her credit.

Marque-page

Guy Roland est un détective qui après la retraite de son patron, Hutte, décide de partir en 1965 à la recherche de sa propre identité qu'il a perdue après un accident mystérieux qui l'a laissé amnésique depuis plus de 15 ans. Remontant les pistes ténues de son passé qui semble s'arrêter pendant la Seconde Guerre mondiale, il apprend qu'il se nomme Jimmy Pedro Stern, un grec-juif de Salonique vivant à Paris sous un nom d'emprunt, Pedro McEvoy, et travaillant pour la légation de la République dominicaine. Ce Pedro McEvoy était entouré d'amis, Denise Coudreuse un mannequin français qui partage sa vie, Freddie Howard de Luz un Anglais de l'île Maurice, Gay Orlow une danseuse américaine d'origine russe, André Wildmer un ancien jockey anglais, qui tous ensemble décidèrent en 1940 de se rendre à Megève afin de fuir un Paris devenu de plus en plus oppressant sous l'Occupation allemande. Denise et Pedro avaient décidé de partir au Portugal via la Suisse en payant des passeurs (Oleg de Wrédé, un russe et Robert Besson, un moniteur de ski) lesquels les abandonnèrent dans la montagne, les laissant seuls, chacun de leur côté, perdus dans la neige.

Guy Roland décide de retrouver Freddie qui est allé vivre en Polynésie après la guerre. Au moment où il arrive à Bora Bora, il apprend que celui-ci a disparu dans un naufrage quelques jours plus tôt. Il ne reste plus à Guy-Pedro Stern qu'une dernière piste pour renouer les fils de son passé : une adresse qu'il aurait occupée à Rome, dans les années 1930, au 2, rue des Boutiques obscures (Via delle Botteghe Oscure).

Description de l'antiquité :

"Ivory Emigrette From The Dieppe Workshops At The End Of The 18th Century"

The movement has always attracted men and after the top, came the yoyo, already known in Greece 2000 years ago; Called "bandalore" in England at the end of the 18th century, he will come back home with the emigrants, hence his little name of "émigrette" or "game of Koblenz" or even "toy of Normandy" Two discs joined by a axis where a string is wound, the yoyo is ready to occupy with its comings and goings, children and parents; the American Donald Duncan will wake up his fashion in the Roaring Twenties and since then, he reappears, more or less modernized as a support advertising or vintage hint among young people. Luxurious with ivory from its Dieppe manufacture at the end of the 18th century, it is large in size and in good condition; the heart of the defense, at the center of the axis shows a small crack but time passing is solely responsible for it.
