Genoa and the Sea
Genoa is a harmonious mix of earth and sea. This wedding of elements can be sensed just walking through the streets or watching the marvellous Campetto’s fountain. At the top of it, a little putto blows inside a shell, pushing the water out gently. The shell expresses the marine soul of the city while the cloven hoofs of a satyr show the earth one, enshrining the union in a marble embrace.
