Genoa (/’[email protected]/JEN-oh–@; Italian Genova [’dZe.nova] (listen), locally (’dZe.nova])[3]is the capital of the Italian region Liguria. It is also the sixth-largest Italian city. The city's administrative boundaries housed 594,733 residents in 2015. [4] The 2011 Italian census showed that the Province of Genoa had 855,834 residents. The metropolitan area that runs along the Italian Riviera is home to more than 1.5 million people. [7]

Genoa, located in the Ligurian Sea's Gulf of Genoa, has been a major port on the Mediterranean. It is the busiest port in Italy and the Mediterranean Seas and the twelfth in the European Union. [8][9]

Genoa was the capital for one of the most powerful maritime republics over seven centuries. It was there from the 11th to the 1797. [10] The city was a major player in Europe's commercial trade, especially from the 12th to the 15th centuries. It was also one of the most powerful naval powers on the continent, and is considered one of the wealthiest cities worldwide. Petrarch also gave it the nickname la Superba (\"the proud\") because of its glory on the seas, and outstanding landmarks. Since the 19th century, the city has been home to large shipyards and steelworks. Its solid financial sector dates back as far as the Middle Ages. The oldest state-deposit bank in the world, the Bank of Saint George was established in 1407. It has been a key part of the city's success since the middle of 15th century. [14][15]
