Every place is special.

Each of its 230,000 square meters can become the characteristic venue for consumer events, product launches, sampling, exhibitions, promotional activities, communication and street marketing.


Stage set location.


A unique urban setting perfect for art house shooting of television commercials, fiction, movies, photo features. A picturesque landscape where the ships together with the original light of the Lantern turn concerts and live shows into an unforgttable multisensorial experience. 

Few locations are so versatile, fascinating, lively. From the architectural features designed by Renzo Piano to the breathtaking angles of Isola delle Chiatte (Barge island); from the monumental Porta Siberia to the spectacular open-air theater of Arena del Mare. And all the more, from the palms of Piazzale Mandraccio to Calata Falcone Borsellino. It is here that the Mediterranean ends and Genoa begins. And
vice versa.
