The first sub-water-diving base was opened on 8th June 2008 , and it is the only one in Italy with a depth of 15 meters and a total area of 1,200 square meters.

According to historical sources the first settlement was based on a primary allocation of the Roman Empire in the first century after Christ. Only the old name of the town, Arentianis, is taken from the property or possession of the Ligurian Arentii family. The historical transformation of the center and the surrounding villages took place in the early Middle Ages due to the proximity of the city of Genoa.
The town was attacked by the barbarians in the Middle Ages and occupied by the Sarazens in the tenth century, and the same also happened to the area belonging to March Obertenga, which was in the possession of a Lombardic family known as the "Oberthengi", and which was once again revived through the expulsion of the Sarazens. Documents and references from the twelfth century provide testimony of the old and most important activities of the city of Arenzano: Shipbuilding and maritime shipping which led people to the Genoan colonies, to Corsica, the black sea and to the Far East.
This coastal town lies west of Genoa, and you can access it through the A10 Highway, through the Via Aurelia coastal street and by train.
