Rolli Days, a journey into the majesty of Renaissance and Baroque Genoa, discovering the sumptuous residences desired by the Genoese aristocracy to demonstrate its elegance, grace and richness. Dozens of beautiful dwellings, beloved by Rubens, UNESCO World Heritage Sites since 2006.
Two days to explore the splendid residences of the Genoese aristocracy, to be fascinated by the amazing beauty of frescoes, furnishings, paintings, and discover the stories of the families of the Genoese aristocracy and the events of a city, known as "the Superb".
A long weekend of extraordinary openings of the famous "Palazzi dei Rolli", built between the end of the 16th and the 17th centuries. A selection of churches, gardens, palaces and villas, which belonged to the same patrician families of the Genoese aristocracy, will open to the public to show their magnificence. Nowadays the Palazzi dei Rolli still partly belong to private owners, while some of the buildings today house banks or offices.
The best way to experience the allure of some of these dwellings is to take one of the extraordinary guided tours organised by the city during the Rolli Days, on May, 04th and 05th
