PL OK! Habsburgs, Murat, Bourbons??? I hope the Neapolitans weren't as confused as I am about who ruled them.

Best,

Barbara

PL OK. It had never occurred to me that Nice mightn't have been part of France, given the physical barrier between it and Italy.

Best,

Barbara

Thanks, Barbara!

Garibaldi was born in Nice and he was pretty angry about how it turned out.

Hi Barbara,

Section 20 is up:

My best,

PL OK. And I am confused. Somewhere during my Librivox career I thought I learnt that Napoleon had opened the route to Italy along the coast by building the corniche. So how did the Italians in Nice communicate with the rest of Savoyard territory? By sea?

Best,

Barbara (I guess we drove to Nice from Genoa....)
