  • Loaded legacy: Napoléon continues to divide France, 200 years after his death

    This year marks the bicentenary of Napoléon Bonaparte's death, but two centuries on, his legacy remains controversial. Was he a heroic reformer or a racist, misogynistic tyrant? While he contributed massively to the modern French state, there are also darker aspects to his legacy, such as his reintroduction of slavery to islands in the Caribbean and the Indian Ocean in 1802. The debate over how and even whether to commemorate the emperor rages on in France. We take a closer look in this edition of French Connections.

  • Napoleon exhibition in Belgium on the 200th anniversaryl of his death

    Liege (Belgium), Apr 8 (EFE) .- (Camera: Leo Rodríguez) Two hundred years after the death of Napoleon Bonaparte, his work and figure continue to attract new generations, who will be able to go on a journey through the first part of the 19th century through the highlights of the emperor's life in the exhibition "Napoleon, beyond the myth", in the city of Liège, in eastern Belgium.FOOTAGE OF THE EXHIBITION.SOUNDBITES BY ALAIN MAGER, DELEGATED ADMINISTRATOR OF THE EXHIBITION.TRANSLATION:1- "Napoleon is a controversial character, there are people who like him and others not so much, that is why we wanted the exhibition to be objective, rigorous but also without taboos."2- "We evoke all the personalities of the character, indeed he made coalition wars in Europe but he also organized life in society. The Napoleonic civil code is surely the greatest example but he also created the Bank of France to finance private investments. He was also the one who set up schools in France as he cared for young people to receive an education and training. He also created the cadastre so that everyone knew who owned what."3- "At the level of life in society, he has left an important legacy, which is also something we talk about this in the exhibition."4.- "The question is not easy since you are asking me to choose between 300 original objects of great value. Perhaps one of the most important pieces is the sword of his consecration, the imperial sword, which was made expressly for the ceremony of his consecration".

  • Les éthylotests disponibles dans les commerces qui vendent de l'alcool dès juillet

    Jusque-là, seules les discothèques et les épiceries de nuit devaient proposer des éthylotests à leurs clients. Cette obligation va bientôt s'étendre à tous les magasins qui vendent de l'alcool. Mais Julien Chivé, caviste bordelais, n'est pas vraiment convaincu. "Je trouve que ça ne sert pas à grand-chose. Les gens savent bien qu'après deux verres, il faut s'arrêter si on veut reprendre la voiture. Et les clients rencontrés ce jeudi matin ne voient pas non plus l'intérêt d'en acheter. "Ca me semble absurde", lance l'un d'eux. "De toute façon, après deux verres, on sera positif, donc c'est à chacun de se gérer", explique un autre.Dans l'épicerie de Virgine Matheron, à Talence (Gironde), il est difficile de trouver une place pour les éthylotests. La gérante doit enlever des produits et envisage surtout des coûts supplémentaires. En effet, dans le supermarché Carrefour City, qui en commercialise depuis un an, ces produits ne sont pas très populaires. "On en a vendu trois en un an", confie le gérant. Près de 50 000 commerçants devraient proposer des éthylotests à partir du 1er juillet, sous peine d'une amende de 675 euros.
