In the new era of Genova's history the year 1992 has the special and very important significance. It was year when Genova, and the rest of the world aswell, have celebrate the Columbus Quincentennial. In that ocasion the EXPO was entrusted to the city of Genova.
The world famous architect Renzo Piano designed the new look of the Porto Antico and, as it happens usualy, his work submited different controversials. From enthusiasm up to total denying.
My first visit to Genova was around 1985 and I still remember the look of the Porto Antico from that time. It was ugly part of the town and everybody was avoiding it. Therefore, I like this new face of this area, most of all because it become clean and bright. Porto Antico was torned from oblivion and become again very vivid part of Genova, as it used to be in its past.
