Genoa (Genova in Italian) is the capital of Liguria and the 6th largest city in Italy, with a population of 608,676 within its administrative limits, and over 1.5 million people in its metropolitan area. Genoa is one of Europe’s largest cities on the Mediterranean Sea and the largest seaport in Italy. It has been nicknamed la Superba (“the Superb one”) due to its glorious past and impressive landmarks. The city is rich in art, music, gastronomy, architecture, and history. It’s the birthplace of Christopher Columbus, and forms the southern corner of the Milan-Turin-Genoa industrial triangle of northwest Italy and is one of the country’s major economic centers. The city has hosted massive shipyards and steelworks since the 19th century; its solid financial sector dates back to the Middle Ages. The Bank of Saint George, founded in 1407, is among the oldest in the world and plays an important role in the city’s prosperity since the mid-15th century.
