The Portofino’s myth echoes in these pages by Salvator Gotta, one of the most popular writers of the Italian ’900. Gotta, in love with the small Ligurian village, chosen as his «buen retiro», described it in a short history: from the many conjectures on the origins of its name, to the Saint George’s cult, to the many famous visitors, Conradin of Swabia, Richard king of England, Napoleon, Wilhelm II. This is a literary guide, investigating the magic of a place where «the houses and the properties display an apparent poverty, and where rich people try to do their very best to humble themselves
during their enjoyment».
