Visite ufficiali del Comune di Genova La sensibilità nei confronti dell’aldilà, l’approccio con la morte e con il divino sono rappresentati a Staglieno in modi diversi e nuovi: dagli angeli con le ali protese, alle anime che ascendono verso il cielo, dalle porte dischiuse, alla danza macabra con la nera signora.

Among the many families who made their mark on Genoa there aren’t only the well known Spinola or Doria. Many other families left behind them a mark: memorable palaces. They hide and guard precious decorations and fascinating tales lost in time. Some families are well known like Pinelli, Giustiniani or Cattaneo, but there are only a few people who remember Feretto’s family. One of its members was a very important character: doge Stefano. He turned his apartment into a Palace fit for a king! Its beauty is able to take your breath away even nowadays and its doors are about to open. However, by exploring the palaces of the Genoese families you aren’t only travelling in time but also in space!
