The fusiliers rooms are a sequence of three spaces.

Rooms 2 tells the History of the Lanterna contextualized within the history of Genoa by its chronology (in italian and english). The room Icon is the first representation of the Lanterna of 1371.

Room 3 shows the Genoa Lighthouse, particularly as seen by the sea, during the Middle Ages, by several reproductions of xylographies.

Room 4 displays reproductions of the Lanterna in the sixteenth and eighteenth centuries, by italian and foreign artists and in different artistic styles, such as etchings, watercolors and lithographs.

In each room, on the opposite side, there are some video to discover more about these reproductions of the Lighthouse.
