History

Genova Piazza Principe was built in 1860 based on a design by Alessandro Mazzucchetti.
The original complex featured a majestic single-span steel vault, a typically Neoclassical passenger building and a Doric style porch, enriched with decorations. In the year 1900 a new beam of crossing tracks was added before the front station and separated from it by erecting a new building in the middle. The need for new facilities to serve the newly added track beam altered the station’s flows and functions: the main hall lost its importance in favor of a new off-centered hall, located in the porch area.
In war time, the large steel vault was dismantled to use the iron recovered for ammunitions and never re-built.
