Italian legends Prologue It is late afternoon on 6th May 1800. A small platoon of French soldiers is standing in Chanoux Square, in the centre of Aosta.
They are all gathered around the officer on watch who has received messages
from Paris.. All the French soldiers in Aosta are waiting for the news from the French capital. “What has Bonaparte decided?” The Austrian spies are in Paris to control the movements of the commander of the French army.
