Piazza de Ferrari is the main square of Genova! As in many other squares around Italy cities, also Piazza de Ferrari has a statue of Giuseppe Garibaldi.

Another specific feature of Genova are the LIONS! You'll find them everywhere: within buildings, outside buildings, on walls. Or on small decorations surrounding Garibaldi statue!

EN: Piazza De Ferrari is the main square of Genoa. Situated in the heart of the city between the historical and the modern center, Piazza De Ferrari is renowned for its fountain, which was restored in recent years along with a major restyling of the square.

Today next to Piazza De Ferrari are numerous office buildings, headquarters of banks, insurances and other private companies, making of this district the financial and business centre of Genoa, so that Genoeses popularly refer to it as the "City" of Genoa.

IT: Piazza De Ferrari è la principale piazza di Genova. Con la sua monumentale fontana è la vera e propria agorà cittadina. Fino agli anni settanta ha costituito il maggiore punto di aggregazione dei più giovani, prima che la movida genovese si trasferisse nella vicina piazza delle Erbe.

FR: La Piazza De Ferrari est la place principale de Gênes, ville italienne de Ligurie. Située au cœur de la ville entre le centre historique et le moderne, la Piazza De Ferrari est renommée pour sa fontaine, qui a été restaurée ces dernières années.

Aujourd'hui, de nombreux immeubles de bureaux, des sièges de banques, d'assurances et autres sociétés privées sont groupés autour de la place, faisant de ce quartier le centre financier et commercial de Gênes. Les Gênois s'y réfèrent en la désignant comme « la ville ».

Piazza de Ferrari is known by any Erasmus student! Most of the meetings happen here: if you need to meet someone, if GEG (the local Erasmus Office) has an event.

Next to the square are several historical palaces and buildings. Among them also Palazzo Ducale (the next stop of our marathon).
