Galleria Mazzini

Nineteenth-century gallery adjacent to the Teatro Carlo Felice, retains the charm of the Parisian "passages"
Galleria Mazzini, Genoa

Galleria Mazzini, in the Genoa’s city centre, was born as a city meeting point for elegant “after show” appointments given its proximity to the Carlo Felice Theater (check out the route to Galleria Mazzini).

It dates back to 1872 and the inauguration was a great event for the city at the time. Here were prestigious cafes and restaurants that could count on special guests like Giacomo Puccini and Giuseppe Verdi.

Today it still retains the charm of the well-known Parisian “passages”, embellished with splendid bronze furnishings, large chandeliers and marble mosaics on the floor.
