Genoa remembers with a lovely Monument of Christopher Columbus who was born in 1451, the oldest of five children. He was named "Cristoforo Colombo".
Who would have thought that he would become such a great explorer, and he would always remember Genoa as his Birthplace. He donated one-tenth of his income from his discovery of the Americas to the Bank of San Giorgio in Genoa for the relief of taxation on foods.
No wonder they remember him! He died in 1506.
