Giulio Cesare Drago cospicuo mercadante con proprio denaro curava nel 1879 che rotta la bastita di Ponte dell'Arco rimanesse indi aperto il prospetto al sottoposto rione e alla fronteggiate collina e che assiepate con sbarre di ferro si antivenisse a morti volontarie o fortuite ------ Compiute nel 1880 le opere il Municipio di Genova in memoria del generoso suo cittadino poneva questa epigrafe

Nell'aprile 1849 le truppe del re di Sardegna Vittorio Emanuele II al comando del generale Alfonso La Marmora sottoposero l'inerme popolazione genovese a saccheggi bombardamenti e crudeli violenze provocando la morte di molti pacifici cittadini aggiungendo così alla forzata annessione della Repubblica di Genova al Regno di Sardegna del 1814 un ulteriore motivo di biasimo affinché ciò che è stato troppo a lungo rimosso non venga più dimenticato il Comune di Genova pose

Le cimetière Montmartre. Au dix huitième siècle, ce terrain sert d'accès aux nombreuses carrières de plâtre de la colline. Transformé en fosse commune pour les victimes émeutes sous la Révolution, il garde cette vocation de nécropole, d'assez sinistre mémoire, sous le nom de "Cimetière de la Barrière blanche": les parisiens, exilés de la capitale après la fermeture de tous les cimetières intra-muros pour raison d'hygiène, y sont inhumés dans des conditions déplorables. Officiellement ouvert le 1er janvier 1825, le Cimetière du Nord est désormais protégé contre les pilleurs de sépultures: il perd ainsi en 1856 l'un de ses conservateurs, M. de Vaulabelle, inventeur d'un système de pièges avec mise à feu, victime de son devoir pour s'être envoyé une décharge mortelle en pleine poitrine!

On this site stood the tenement known as Golfer's Land. It was built in the 17th century by Bailie John Paterson the golfer with, it is said, his share of the stakes from a golf match when he partnered the Duke of York (afterwards James VII) against two English noblemen. The bronze coat of arms is a copy of a stone carving which was built into Golfer's land. Another panel with Latin inscription by Dr Pitcairne, which may be seen in the courtyard to the rear, links the Paterson family with the Building and the name of golf.
