City in the north-west of Italy, hometown of Christopher Columbus, Niccolò Paganini, Giuseppe Mazzini, Pietro Germi, Vittorio Gassman, Fabrizio De André, Ivano Fossati. Famous for pesto and blue jeans (from "bleu de Gênes", lit. "blue of Genoa"). Largest port of Italy and home of the first football team in the country, Genoa Football & Cricket Club, founded in 1893. Stunningly beautiful city inhabited by proud, highly unsociable people. The Genovese invented the first bank and the first pawnshop in the Western world.
Aw, what's the matter with him?
You gotta understand, he's from Genoa - he ain't very social. He's not evil though.

A small rural village in northwest Ohio, full farm machinery and wiggers. About the size of a nickel. Tries to cram every ethnic restarunt inside its limits. Has one dangerous intersection. Includes people who mow their lawn riding a mower with two push mowers attached, and those who think themed mailboxes are the next "it" item. Has trains that wake you up at night, and a blasting quarry to distract the elementary students.
"So, where do you live?"
"Genoa."
"Where?"

Tiny ass town in Illinois that might as well have no location because no one knows where it is. Surrounded by corn fields. Corner Grill is the best restaurant downtown, our local gas station sells ice cream from Wisconsin even though we're in Illinois. Our high school's mascot is a Cog, we're a small town school with big time pride and the ultimate slogan is "What a day to be a cog"
Wait where is Genoa?
