Palazzo della Nuova Borsa
Piazza Raffaele De Ferrari
+39 055 868 7452
This was designed by D. Carbone, and built between 1907 and 1912 as a substitute for the former site of the Loggia dei Banchi. The building retained its original function until 1998, when the glorious Genovese stock exchange, the oldest in Italy, closed its doors. It is characterised by its curved façade facing onto Via XX Settembre
and Via Dante, as well as the very central Piazza De Ferrari
. It still retains its decorative ornamentation created by A. Coppedé, dubbed "neo-baroque" due to the care taken in both the minute details and the monumental dimensions of the whole. The splendid eliptical trading room, with its adorned sky light, is worth seeing, as are the groups of sculptures outside, and the picturesque domes on the top, which today are the premises of an exclusive club.
