The monumentality of the central station in Piazza Principe underlined by a neoclassical arch now removed ... Horse carriages waiting for the next passengers ... The Commenda of the Jerusalem knights in the background ...and the natural bastion of San Benigno which separated Genoa from the immediate western side of the city and closed the northern crown stretched between Righi and Peralto. The city leaned on the port like a cat curled up in the midday sun.
