Genova Brignole is an important local and regional transit hub for both commuters and tourists and it’s the second station of Liguria’s main city. Located at the foot of the Colle Montesano, in the Piazza after which it was named, the structure is a short walk away from the center and offers a wide range of facilities like shopping, services and restaurants.
The station was built in occasion of the 1905 World’s Fair on a design by engineer Giovanni Ottino, which included a passenger building that stretched for 105 m, developed in height in three wings with a central axis of symmetry. Its architecture recalls the Romantic style from the French Renaissance, enriched with large decoration patterns. The Roman style front facade, overlooking Piazza Verdi, is embellished with stuccoes and stones from the Montorfano quarries; the interior walls feature prestigious frescoes by De Servi, Berroggio and Grife.
