Genoa La Superba
Overlooking the Ligurian Sea, its history is tied to seafaring and commerce. It is known, among other things, for being the birthplace of Christopher Columbus, Giuseppe Mazzini, and Goffredo Mameli. Its port is the most important in Italy.
The physical symbol of the city is its lighthouse, located on the border between the San Teodoro and Sampierdarena districts, on the rocky spur that closed the disappeared hill of San Benigno to the sea, known as La Lanterna, while it is traditionally represented by the Cross of St. George, supported by two griffins in the coats of arms. For over eight centuries the capital of the homonymous republic, Genoa has been referred to as La Superba, La Dominante, La Dominant of the seas, and The Republic of the Magnificents.
It hosted Expo '92, the controversial G8 summit in 2001, and in 2004 it was European Capital of Culture. In its historic center, numerous palaces, collectively known as the Palazzi dei Rolli, have been declared World Heritage Sites by UNESCO.
In Genoa, there are some of the most beautiful palaces in Europe, authentic treasures, often still private residences, to be sought and discovered both in the historic center of Genoa and along the Riviera.
