Genoa, port city in Italy.

Fishburn and Hughes: "Genoa, a city and fortified port in north-west Italy which came under Roman rule in the third 77 century BC and prospered as a port. After the fall of the Roman Empire, it was invaded first by the Lombards and then by the Moors. By the twelfth century it was one of the most important maritime republics of the Mediterranean, promoter of the Crusades, coloniser of the Levant and a bitter rival of Venice." (76)
