[February, 2012] Do you know who is Cristoforo Colombo? No, it is nothing to do with Peter Falk.
It is the real Italian name of Christopher Columbus.
He lived this house in Genoa from the age of 4 to 25.
His father was a weaver and the house was a shop as well.
Cristoforo started trading cloth and then other things all over Europe and eventually all over the world.
Attending the weaving school and learned reading and writing was important for his life, too.
The young woman who keeps this house taught me these.
