Its origins go back to the 2nd century BC: the ancient Vada Sabatia developed along the Via Emilia Scauri, a strategic crossroad for Liguria, Piedmont and Tuscany. With the fall of the Roman Empire the town was destroyed. It flourished again under the Franks and from the 7th-9th centuries was a bishop’s see. It belonged to the Del Carretto marquises, and then came under the jurisdiction of the commune of Savona and then of the Republic of Genoa. During the Genoese dominion the area of Porto Vado, made into a Podesteria, enjoyed a strong and constant growth in trade. Little has remained of the old town, save the remains swallowed up in the structures of the town hall and the ruins of the Del Carretto castle, which dominates the village of Segno. Some seventeenth-century fortifications can still be seen, as well as the ruins of the Santo Stefano fort, the San Giovanni Bastion, and above all the grandiose San Giacomo fort with seventeenth-century batteries. The Monument to the Fallen documents the Vado activity of the sculptor Arturo Martini, like some extraordinary works of his kept at the Villa Groppallo Civic Museum. In the port area ferries embark for Corsica and Sardinia. ( More Less )
