Napoleon's Autobiography published by D'ORO Collection in 2016 is the new edition of the first publication of 1975. It is entirely handwritten and available in numbered copies. This volume is a collection of texts written or dictated by Napoleon himself. It contains a faithful description of his actions in the grandeur and majesty of his historical era. The text consists of a preface, two introductions written respectively by Victor Hugo and Edvige Santiné, and extracts from Napoleon's diaries, divided into 18 chapters and accompanied by historical and official documents taken from his secretary. Napoleone is entirely handmade with 220 grams thick handmade paper. Each page is sewn by master craftsmen using wooden frames similar to those used in the Middle Ages. Napoleone's covers are made of blue leather lined with light blue silk. Two bronze reliefs, gilded by immersion in a 24 Kt gold bath, form the front and back covers.

Since 2020, in the heart of Rome, D'ORO Collection craftsmen have been printing and binding books entirely by hand using the finest leathers, papers and silks, and hand-crafting bas-relief covers finished in gold leaf. Made using ancient craft methods, these books become jewels destined to preserve history, tradition and excellence for future generations.
