We will go to the discovery of an enchanted place, suspended between past and present; a cross-section of the Genoese society between the 19° and the 20° century that is the celebration of an era and a community that wanted to become  immortal through the art of sculpture,  from classicism to realism, to the lightness and mystery of Art Deco.

There are big names in Staglieno, from the proud entrepreneurs known throughout Italy as Ansaldo and Piaggio, to famous people from history book like Giuseppe Mazzini and Nino Bixio, to great songwriters like Fabrizio De André.

Indeed, the most famous is a little woman, Caterina Campodonico, who, despite her poor origins, has accomplished her mission: to have her place of honor in the prestigious porch, right next to those rich gentlemen who probably, in life, had always snubbed her.

Entirely pedestrian, not suitable for people with reduced mobility.

Your four-legged friend will be welcome.
