History

As recent archaeological findings proved, the area of Bogliasco was inhabited since Paleolithic and Mesolithic times; the Romans built a bridge here (the current structure dates to the 13th century AD). After the fall of the Western Roman Empire and the Byzantine and Lombard domination, Liguria was conquered by Charlemagne; the burgh of Bogliasco fell under the Republic of Genoa after the year 1182, suffering numerous raids from Saracen pirates. The town was destroyed by Venetian galleys in 1432.

After the French domination, Bogliasco, together with the whole Liguria, was annexed to the Kingdom of Sardinia, and then to the newly unified Kingdom of Italy in 1861.
