  • The beautiful peninsula of Sestri Levante and been enhanced in 20 years of the twentieth century by the building at the foot of the old Castle of San Nicolò dei castelli Gualino, named after the developer, Riccardo Gualino industrial piemontese. The group stands on the site once occupied by the medieval fortifications built by the Genoese in 1145 and dismantled during a siege of Florence and Venice. In 1432 were rebuilt from Genoa. In 1810 the castle of san Nicolò was turned into a cemetery while the fortifications remained mute testimonies of past vicissitudes warlike. Patron and lover of the arts, Gualino started in 1925 the negotiations for the building of castles. Three buildings were built, the castle of cipressi residence of Gualino, the Castle Oaks for guests and the castle of agavi for the servants. The style is neo-Romanesque, using numerous pieces of reuse and proposes a model of middle ages invented but plausible from a formal point of view. An important decorative function have steps, doorways, Windows, columns, capitals, Byzantine and Romanesque and Gothic style chimney stacks up to the Renaissance from Viterbo, from abruzzo, Apulia. There is also the presence of Greeks, Romans and Egyptians from archaeological excavations.
