#36 - Porta Soprana and Columbus House

This is Porta Soprana, which was once the gateway to the city of Genoa.
To the right, I believe is the house of Domenico Columbus, father of you-know-who.
During the French Revolution, the Italians imported the guillotine. It was utilized
in one of the towers until 1809. Mamma mia!

Grazie Irene!


  1. I really admire your concern on people in need.I sure will send a post card.

  2. You have so many incredibly beautiful cards on your blog right now - the card from India, this one, St. Kitts, Jamaica...all gorgeous! I am quite envious. And from Skopje - I have received the very same card from the very same lovely Ana. :)

  3. smart reader, thanks for your kind words and support. I appreciate it :)
