Old shops Christmas Edition


Join us on a walk in the Old Town! Discover lovely Genoese shops as the old barbershop, the typical fry-shops and the special corners that keep the true Christmas traditions of Genoa alive! We reveal to you costumes long forgotten, pieces of the living of a city where History, Legend and Tradition mix up creating unexpected tales. Experience the flavours and fragrances of the typical Genoese Christmas Lunch (the so called “Denà ”). Follow us and discover the habits that once delighted adults and children. Live a mix of tradition and Christmas spirit that will make you see Genoa from a different point of view!

 In the Labyrinth of the Genoese Alleys

Have you ever noticed that some chocolates resemble the shape of an olive? Well, in 1802 the Genoese engineer Bozelli modified an olive press and realized a hydraulic machine able to refine the cocoa mass and mix it with sugar and vanilla. Isn’t it ironic? From that moment on, chocolate has been one of the protagonists of the Genoese Christmas.
