Goodbye, Columbus

I hopped a train the next morning and crossed the Alps into Switzerland, where the first major snowfall of the season erased all thoughts of dreary Genoa. But seeing this wonderful short film titled Genoa—More Than This by Russian cinematographer and filmmaker Alex Soloviev has me reconsidering the ancient port city.
