High life quality
A land of imposing mountains and gentle hills coloured by the green of the Mediterranean maquis: the great resource of Liguria is the sea that, with its rocky coasts and fine sandy beaches, is an incredible beauty.
The city where the Italian anthem was composed, Genova hosts now the headquarters of important companies such as Fincantieri and Costa Crociere. It is part of the "Milan-Turin-Genova" industrial triangle and its history has been linked for centuries to seafaring, trade and industry.
The conformation of Ligurian territory has always pushed the local economy towards the sea, and to the trade, becoming a land that offers peculiar and unique products.
The most flourishing industries are the textile with cotton, hemp and jute, the food with high quality pasta and the famous pesto exported all over the world and, last but not least, tourism, a real lung for the local economy.
