The Louvre on fire: history of a false report

2016-2017: Spring

Manfred Posani Löwenstein received his Ph.D. from the Scuola Normale Superiore di Pisa in 2015 with a thesis on the concept of the unconscious in the historiography of Jacob Burckhardt. He is currently working on both the French and Italian critical editions of Nietzsche’s philological writings (Les Belles Lettres, Adelphi). At the Italian Academy he will investigate the reactions raised by the false report of the burning of the Louvre during the Paris Commune (1871).
