Actually the true name of the town is Albisola, but in 1613 a clerk of the council made a mistake, writing the name with two s’s. This is explained by Giovanni Poggi, a potter that accompanies us on our walk around the town. We start from Piazza Lam, named for the twentieth-century Cuban surrealist painter Wifredo Lam, who did a mosaic of one of his most famous paintings, “The jungle” also displayed at the Museum of Modern Art in New York. Albissola is a town of artists, who have left their traces around the town. Going along the street from Piazza Lam to the sea, we reach the “Artists’ promenade.” A street 800 metres long, with a mosaic flooring in which there are twenty panels done beginning from the drawings of various artists. A true “outdoor museum”, born from an idea of an employee of the council, Adolfo Testa, and the artist Aligi Sassu.
