3000 Years of Inspiration
Inspired History. Inspired Lifestyle. Inspired Design.
Genova, Italy, the 3,000-year-old harbor city overlooking the Mediterranean, has inspired the Etruscans, the Greeks, the Romans, the Byzantines, the French, the Italians and, of course, all of us who love the Riviera.
In fact, Genova derived its name as the “knee” of the Italian Riviera. Its influence is felt from the haute couture shops of San Remo to the hillside villas of Portofino to the Art Nouveau hotels of Rapallo to the medieval coastal towns of the Cinque Terra.
As Italy’s largest seaport, one naturally thinks of the Genovese influence on shipbuilding and trade throughout Europe, but Genova’s influence on European architecture is equally unsurpassed.
In 1622 when Pietro Rubens published “Palazzi di Genova”, his masterpiece on the 13 noble-family palaces along the now famous Strada Nuova, their magnificent architecture, finishes, gardens and art were immortalized.
Rubens’ historic work quickly became the authority for modern urban architecture throughout Europe. Hundreds of years later the Bianco, Rosso and Doria-Tursi palaces are still legendary with planners, architects and tourists.
The courtyard palaces of the Strada Nova were also the inspiration for the new Genova luxury condo, resort-lifestyle community in Estero, Florida.
She Inspired the Strada Nuova, the Italian Riviera and Trofie Pesto . . .
Yes…she inspired many things but Genova, Italy also gave us something else. An attitude. A culture. A way of thinking. The simple premise “Life is for sharing”.
Yes, the basil, garlic, pine nuts, cheese and virgin olive oil make the trofie pesto delicious, but it’s the people around the table who make it magical. The Genovese were and still are truly inspiring.
It is this lifestyle which inspired the creator of Rapallo at Coconut Point and Lighthouse Bay at The Brooks in Estero, Florida to build one more…one last great community…Genova Luxury Condos.
