Ancient remedy

The ancient church of S.Stefano in Fontanarossa (Genoa, Italy) was built around the year one thousand.
The church has characteristics such as to suggest that it was built by the Saracens. In 935 the caliph Maliero Muhamond put to fire and sword Genoa and later pushed their raids up to the hinterland.

It is likely that one of these groups of fugitives took refuge in Fontanarossa and here they have built what would become the church of S.Stefano.
