It is not easy to translate "palazzata". I think I can translate "façade of palaces".
The palazzata of Camogli is quite famous. These are fishermen's houses built in height. The reason they were so high, of course for being fishermen's house, is the lack of space.
Unfortunately, now there are few fishermen in Camogli. Nowadays, they are, moistly, expensive holiday homes.


I appreciate your beautiful panorama much, dear Giuseppe ... and I see that November is a nice time too, to visit this beautiful region !!!

Memories awakened once more, when I look to my parking place with the camper, and my last hike with my dog early in the morning to San Rocco and near Monte Portofino on October 13th ...

Good night and cordial greetings

Alberto, sette mogli vuol dire anche sette suocere...
Nessuna invidia...

Capisco... è solo nelle filastrocche che la moglie porta sette gatte e sette gattini.
Dunque buonanotte!
[Non solo a te, ma anche all'idea delle sette mogli]

Hi Giuseppe, how good are they earthquake resistant?

Hi Mentor. You ask a very interesting question, but it is not easy for me to answer.
I do not know the specific situation of the palazzata of Camogli, but I assume that the buildings have not considered seismic risk and that therefore in case of earthquakes it is probable that they will crawl.
More generally in Italy, for historical and cultural reasons, there are many buildings dating back to past centuries and often even to medieval times. They are often in the most beautiful areas. It is not easy to secure these buildings.
In my opinion, what is unacceptable in Italy is when collapsed buildings built or restructured recently.
