Icon of the Category "Urban"Via del Campo Genova


The entrance road to the medieval city from the west. Degraded, although rich in Baroque palaces, it is known for the song by De Andrè.

The terminal part of the main axis of the ancient city, where "uncomfortable" functions of the city have thickened over time: the Jewish ghetto, the closed houses of prostitution, the smuggling arriving from the nearby port. De Andrè sings these aspects, while an increasingly incisive urban redevelopment process is replacing marginal activities with more noble residences and functions.
