Napoleone Bonaparte sold Venice to the Austrians, introduced the basis of statalism in Italy and ordered architects to duplicate italian masterpieces back in Paris. regardless of all this, italian tend to love him.
and he did all this because, deep inside, he was very, very italian.

If Napoleon was very Italian then how come he won so many battles and wars?

"deep inside", not Napoleon as whole (I know we're talking about a midget, but still).
the french part of Napoleon is the one that stained europe with blood. and of course the one that made him such a brilliant warlord.
