Shopping the “big brands” is the same all over the world but "go to the shops" among the alleyways and squares is a unique experience.
In the old town of Genova you will find many antique shops, which carry on their activities for many years.
Are shops which are located in old buildings, woven into the fabric of the old town, with architecture, furnishings, equipment and historical documents, which bear witness to the activities of at least 70 years old, but in many cases up to 200 !!
To preserve this enormous wealth has been set up a "Register of the historic workshops", in which are placed those exercises that have been operating for at least 70 years and meet a number of requirements imposed by the Superintendence for Architectural Heritage: the conservation of architecture, furnishings, equipment or instrumentation historical yet functional activity carried out, the documents preserved than the story of the year, the environmental context.
