Italy: Palazzi dei Rolli in Genoa

Today I got two postcards: one from Italy and one from Germany.

The card from Italy shows the Palazzo Doria Tursi, the Palazzo Reale, the Palazzo Pantaleo Spinola and the Palazzo Rosso on Genoa's Strade Nuove. The Palazzo Doria-Tursi houses Genoa's city hall and a museum. The Palazzo Reale houses the National Gallery and is known for its historic furniture and decoration. The Palazzo Pantaleo Spinola is today the headquarters of the Banco di Chiavari e della Riviera Ligure. The Palazzo Rosso is one of the most important picture galleries in the city. Since 2006 are the Strade Nuove and the system of the Palazzi dei Rolli in Genoa on the UNESCO World Heritage List.


The card was signed during the Postcrossing Meet-up in Genoa.
