Piazza Fossatello is an ancient square in the Old Town of Genoa. Already mentioned in 12th century documents, it was a market place where fruit and vegetables were sold. Overlooking the square are Palazzo Cipriano Pallavicini and the Palazzo di Gio Battista Centurione, the Palazzi dei Rolli declared a World Heritage Site by Unesco.

Via Lomellini starts from piazza Fossatello (check out the route), the ancient center of power of the noble Genoese Lomellini family, also enriched by the presence of two Palazzi dei Rolli and the Casa Museo di Giuseppe Mazzini, spearhead activist for the unification of Italy (Risorgimento).

Fossatello stands in the center of one of the most important thoroughfares of the Old Town, which from Piazza Banchi along via San Luca and via del Campo (made famous by the song of the Genoese singer-songwriter Fabrizio De Andrè, today hosts the emporium-museum “viadelcampo29r” / show more about the Genoese singer-songwriters) leads to Porta dei Vacca, still standing today at the end of Via del Campo,
