The Genoa of the British: not only Genoa

The British community in Genoa played a leading role in the growth and wealth of the city. Everyone knows that the first lovers of football in Italy were the subjects of his Majesty (it was in 1893 that the Genoa Cricket and Football Club was born, the oldest football team in Italy). However, industry, port, commerce and culture grow in Genoa also under the sign of the British.
