Abstract The relevance of the Napoleonic domination in both Europe and Italy is commonly tied to the deep re-organization of the Public Administration. The research, informed by the Foucault's governmentality concept, tries to investigate the technologies of government during the first Napoleonic domination of Ferrara Municipality, between 1796 and 1799. In the Foucauldian framework, the interest is towards the ways political rhetoric percolates into reality. This study contributes to the extant literature on the role of governmentality as an interpretative concept. The supposed linearity between the high political discourse and the technologies of government is discussed in the light of the archival data. The period analysed is of great interest for the reshaping of the state/citizens' relationship through the public administration apparatus.
