Hi friends!

I would like to share with you some photos I took the past Sunday, when me and my husband went to Genoa to the "Galata - Museo del Mare" .....
this is the official web site:
portale.galatamuseodel.../index.jsp
You can say.... and then???
Well, as I'm considering you all as my FRIENDS I thought it can be interesting for you to see a few photos of this museum because there is a section (only a little Crying or Very sad ) dedicated to the emigration from the Genoa Port....
The Museum is really beautiful (they said it's the biggest about this subject in the mediterranean area) ... I have to apoligize because the site is in Italian Embarassed .
The Museum building (Galata) is the ancient build survived from the Republic of Genoa, and in it there were built the old boat of those period (from 1600)....
A wonderful section is about the "italian liner" (Transatlantici Italiani) there are many models (the REX is amazing) and there is a big room where you can see a film on the wall describing "life onboard" ....
Some old films about the Immigrants arrivals in Ellis Island....
And on the higher floor people can enter in a cabin pilot and drive the liner from Gibilterra to New York (my husband enjoyed this section soooo much!)
I thought I could find something more about emigration but..... I hope in these next years something will happen.... in 2004 when Genoa was the European capital of culture, in this museum there was a big exposition about emigration but it was temporary....
I put all my photos on Flickr.com but as I'm not a genie with that, I prefere post some images here, if someone is interested in see all the photos, please send me an e.mail so I can invite you on my Album....

How could you possibly think that by sharing your wonderful photos with us here on "Gente" you might be bothering us?

Laura it is us who are grateful for your kindness. The photo's are so poignant, especially the view of the Statue of Liberty as so many Italians would have seen it when they arrived and that last one of the labourers. What a hard life those early settlers must have had!

Thank you!

Thanks for sharing Laura. The museum looks really interesting. I have driven through/past Genoa a few times but I have never visited the city. I stayed in Santa Margharita which was a beautiful resort town. I have seen pictures of Genoa on travel shows and it looks really interesting and I would like to spend some time there in the future (but my cousins in the south Puglia & Calabria can't understand me coming to Italy and not spending my whole time visiting them):-)
