  • Piazza de Ferrari is the main square of Genoa, located between the old town and the modern business centre. Great fountain, located in the middle of the square, one of the symbols of the city. Raffaele de Ferrari, whose house is nearby, was Duke and patron of the city. The square goes the lateral façade of the Ducal Palace, the Gesù Church, Palace of Exchange, City Theatre Carlo Felice and the Museum of the Academy of fine arts. The area is famous for its festive concerts, one of which we visited in January 2014 onwards, as well as demonstrations.
