Bigo

Bigo by Renzo Piano, Porto Antico, Old Port, Genoa
“Bigo” by Renzo Piano, 1992
Porto Antico (Old Port)
Genoa, April 2016

“A panoramic lift offering a 360° view on Porto Antico di Genova. Bigo was designed by architect Renzo Piano to offer you an amazing aerial view of one of the largest historical centres of Europe, rich of art. The lift cabin features an audio system and panels in Italian, English, French and German that describe the bell towers, towers, the typical slate roofs and ancient and modern buildings that stand out from the maze of ‘caruggi’. The comments on the history of the Ancient Port Area and Historical Centre are accompanied by a pleasant music background.”
