Genoa DelegationOfficial Exchanges
Our Sister City
In October 2019, Columbus City Councilmember Priscilla Tyson led a delegation to Genoa, Italy in order to accept the International Communication Award from the City of Genoa for Columbus’ work on the Paganini Violin Exchange. This prestigious award honors any entity who has helped to highlight the culture of Genoa globally.
During this visit, the group also discussed educational exchange opportunities, food and sustainability projects, and possible engineering/tech start-up exchanges.
The Thousand People of Columbus exhibit, which consisted of the 1,400 portraits captured by photographer Timothy Costa taken in 2018, were displayed throughout public venues across the city.
