The history of the port
The economic growth of Genoa goes in parallel with that of its port and, in particular, of the area where it rises. In fact, in this area there were some of the first populations that inhabited Liguria: these populations came from the sea and were different from those inhabitants inland for both culture and lifestyle.
The port was only a sheltered cove and thus remained until about the year 1000, when there was a revival of the trade that determined the construction of wooden piers and the monopoly of wealthy families who imported valuable goods from the Orient.
The history of the ancient port, also called Mandraccio, is the history of a port in continuous transformation to adapt to the times and to the continuous changes of the techniques of loading and unloading of ships. Updating not only as regards the structures but also modifying the stretch of coastline in which the port exists.
Before the Second World War, the trade had grown very much, in particular beyond the Bacino della Lanterna, so as to make necessary the construction of new ports: the Sampierdarena and the terminal Voltri.
