Eugène Emanuel

Born of ancestors originating from Carpentras, and making their home in Nice on 18th century, Eugène, Joseph, Innocent Emanuel was studying in the Jesuits’ private school. Appointed notary on 1853, he preferred to make his career in judicial chancelleries, and was Clerk of the Court in Villars, Saint-Étienne-de-Tinée, Contes, before to be appointed in Nice. After the annexation on 1860, Eugène Emanuel opted for the Italian nationality and went to Oneille, then Modene and at last Genoa where he ended his career.

About fifteen of Eugène Emanuel’s poems were gathered by his son Victor (1) and publicated on 1884 under the title Canson Niçardi d’Eugène Emanuel (“Eugène Emanuel’s songs from Nice”).
