Additional Location Information
The neighborhood is called Apparizione (Paisciôn in regional dialect, pron. “paisciun”). It's on the hills (203 m over see level) and part of the municipality of Genova, situated at the base of Monte Fasce, over Quarto dei Mille.
An autonomous municipality until 1926, when together with other 18 municipalities it was merged into the municipality of Genova.
It is part of the town council of IX Levante and has about 3000 inhabitants.
It lies on the left side of Valle Sturla and today it is essentialy a residential area, formerly it was rural and it's inhabitants used to grow olives and have farming and breeding activities, that in part persist today.
Situated along one of the muletracks that in ancient times connected the coast to the hills and beyond over the Monte Fasce (834 m o.s.l.). One of these trails is today a road (SP 67, built in the 60's) that runs along the ridge and takes to Uscio and Gattorna with fabulous views over the city, it's forts, the sea and the coastlines.
The name of the neighborhood comes from the ancient 'Costa di Parisone' (of uncertain origin but in historical documents from 1070), but popular tradition attributes it to an appearance of Virgin Mary in 1315.
The main square of Apparizione is called Piazza Luigi Pitto, there is a church and a butcher who sells very good meat and a lot of other specialties.
