Genoa confirms the spring promotional event dedicated to the System of the Palazzi dei Rolli, which are part of UNESCO Heritage List until 2006, and it moves it on the web to allow the audience to discover the wonder of these sumptuous dwellings of the Genoese aristocracy.
From May 16 to 23 a series of never before seen videos, will open the doors of some of the more prestigious palaces, some of them shown for the first time.

In addition to the above mentioned 12 palaces, it will be possible to discover other important venues, many other Palazzi dei Rolli (Palazzo Tursi, Palazzo Reale, Palazzo Spinola, di Pellicceria, Palazzo della Meridiana), extraordinary places, often not so popular like the Diocesan Museum, important institutions like Carige Bank with its wonderful art collection.
Genoa will be represented also through different artistic languages: the music by Niccolò Paganini, with the Capricci, performed by Andrea Cardinale within the suggestive frame of the Paganiniana Hall at Palazzo Tursi, edited by Associazione Amici di Paganini; the words of the artists and writers who described the city and its sea, which will be aim of Igor Chierici performances; the dance, interpreting the sounds and colours of the city
And there will be the opportunity to discover Genoese flavours too, thanks to the traditional recipes, reinterpreted by one of the chefs belonging to Genova Gourmet network and through an innovative “Rolli’s menu”, that includes many ingredients of our region, created by young "Chefs in quarantine".
