“The city it­self is walled and, at its heart, com­prises cres­cents of im­pres­sive, gleam­ing white houses which rise to a tall and multi- tur­reted palace at the cen­tre. There is no ac­cu­rate street map of the city of Genua; the main boule­vards and av­enues are con­stant but once you ven­ture into the marshy sub­urbs en­croached upon by swamp and for­est, lo­ca­tions are not so pre­dictable. Most dwellings in the outer ar­eas are built on stilts. Some of these river shacks are in­deed peri­patetic, with a ten­dency to rise up and wan­der off to find a new place to set­tle – of­ten leav­ing the privy be­hind.”
