Photographer's Note

The Aquarium of Genoa is the largest aquarium in Italy and the second largest in Europe. Built for Expo 92, the Aquarium of Genoa is an educational, scientific and cultural centre. Its mission is to educate and raise public awareness as regards conservation, management and responsible use of aquatic environments. It welcomes over 1.2 million visitors a year. The Aquarium of Genoa is co-ordinating the AquaRing EU project. It also provides scientific expertise and a great deal of content for AquaRing, including documents, images, academic content and interactive online courses, via its Online Resource Centre.[

The Aquarium of Genoa's architecture was developed collaboratively by Renzo Piano of the Renzo Piano Building Workshop, and by Peter Chermayeff leading a design team at Cambridge Seven Associates, also responsible for the initial exhibit design at opening in 1992.
