The Old Shops of the Great Genova

Among the Post office and the Stock Exchange stands a little shop that once was a shoe shine shop! This is not a coincidence. After all, according to an American tradition, the best shoeshine boys’s customers were stockbrokers and financial intermediaries. So, Genoese, that are well known for being very careful with money, couldn’t choose a better spot! Nowadays this XX century charming corner houses a nice boutique.
