Overview

Built in 1548 for the nobleman Luca Giustiniani, this is considered to be the prototype for the Alessian villa, characterised by its square shape, and its position, dominating its surroundings. The Perugian architect Galeazzo Alessi, who was to leave a tangible trace of himself on Genoa in the form of both public and religious architecture, thought of the building as a compact block, apparently disconnected from the garden surrounding it, which once extended to the sea but today is divided into various public parks. The decoration inside the villa is quite sombre. It is currently the property of the University Department of Engineering. Students from other faculties are envious of the park in which poring over your books is a much more pleasant experience.
