I was there last summer, but I missed the piazza with the modern buildings on the first pics. I recognize Piazza di Ferrari.

A newspaper from Rio published a few days ago in its travel section (actually, a small magazine that comes out every Thursday) a cover article about Genoa. What I read and saw in its pages called my attention and made me change the impression I had about this city. I don't know why, but I didn't think it would be a beautiful city, but after reading that article I could see that it is actually a beautiful and interesting place.
But I wanted to know some more - and see more pictures of it, like these I am seeing in your thread, which confirmed the second impression I had about Genoa (the one I had after reading that articule I told you about). Thanks for sharing your photos. Btw, won't you post the pictures you took when you went back to the city in 2010 (along this thread you said you would go back there)?

Genoa for sure is really amazing, very nice city and especially the center of the city; it would be nice through to see some new photos (if it possible of course)

Could you please make a separate thread for your photos of Genova? Thanks.

Well, we could say that you've made some improvement...

Interesting thread. I only passed there by train, so I don't know the city at all. But it looks much better than the grey harbour and industry town that I expected.

Genova is fascinating, chaotic altough, being a huge harbour in the mediterranean, but it is part of her charme. Being both an important harbour, the birth place of Columbus, and a very old financial center - like New York - (the most powerful bankers of the western world for centuries), Genova is kind of a symbolic city for the western civilisation and for capitalism itself. The g8 in 2001 has been an historical, yet very sad, page of our recent history. It was not a case, maybe, that it took place in Genova. The city has got this melancholic and nostalgic 'aura', which I love very much. It is a place of strong emotions, enhanced by some of the best italian songwriters of the '900, like Gino Paoli and Fabrizio De André.

Lol.. I can't remember much from my experience. It's not really a city that made a huge impact on me. I drove past Genova this summer on my way to Milan. I think I was actually 16 when I took these photos haha!
