Albenga is an Italian town of 24.081 inhabitants, in the province of Savona, in Liguria. It is the second biggest city in the province and it extends its influence to over 60 thousand people, second only to Savona. Albenga is famous for its historical towers.
Initially, Albenga was an ancient of Ligurian inheritage, to then become a roman Municipium. It then became a Medieval town: the river mouth changed its features during this time, while the city also was busy at war with the city of Genova, which imposed its military presence in the area. During these dark times Albenga loses its ancient maritime strength, and richness, due to a shift of maritime activitites towards the nearby city of Alassio, which was safer. Since those times, Albenga's economy is based mainly on agriculture. Subsequently under French domination, Albenga was given to the Savoia family. Under all these dominations Albenga will not recover to its ancient importance, until the 19th Century, during which improtant landscaping works were done to improve the water discharge of Centa river, and thus boosting the agricultural potential of the surrounding lands. Albenga quickly grows and updates its architecture with modern standards, and has kept growing steadily until modern days, during which it is a worldwide exporter of premium produce of its fertile lands.source: wikipedia - keep reading
The plain onto which Albenga is built (ciana d'Arbenga in ligurian dialect) is the biggest in Liguria and originates from the sediments of Arroscia, Neva and Pennavaire torrents, which merge together in the vicinities of the city, to form the Centa river. With a total surface of over 45 km2, the plain is surrounded by the towns of Ceriale, Cisano sul Neva, Ortovero and Albenga. In 1924 all of the wetlands which naturally were present until then, were dried. Typical local produce includes a world famous breed of asparagus, pumpkins, tomatoes, artichokes and olive trees.source: wikipedia
