In the fin-de-siecle period, it emerged as an important hub for literature and music and underwent an economic revival in the 1930s.

Today, the city is in one of the richest regions of Italy, and has been a great center for shipping, shipbuilding, and financial services. In 2012, LonelyPlanet.com listed the city as the world’s most underrated travel destination.
