Our history in brief
Since 1950, with the foundation of Edile Ramasco thanks to its founder Mauro Ramasco, in Portofino there is a company that makes of quality and competence two of its fundamental characteristic.
Always a leader in the design, construction and building renovation our company, exclusive family-run Ramasco, boasts a succession of prestigious works such as the reconstruction of the famous Church of San Giorgio in Portofino after the bombings of World War II and the beautiful ‘Le Carillon’, historical center of social life of Portofino.
Along with villas immersed in the Natural Park of Portofino (UNESCO World Heritage), the works on apartments and boutiques located in the famous Portofino’s square in which we were involved are the evidences of the quality and professionalism of Ramasco family.
The company in over 60 years evolved his skills over the time, working both nationally and abroad specializing in the delivery of services dedicated to the world of luxury homes and first-class residences.
The relation with our territory
Our reality is strongly bound to the environment of the Gulf of Tigullio and the Portofino Park, where our offices, traditions and activities are located, and both the Church of S. Giorgio and the Oratory of NS Assunta are for us examples of the value of this strong connection.
The Church of St. George, at the center of the peninsula of Portofino was razed to the ground during II World War with the bombings of the allied forces who aimed at the destruction of Nazi strategic locations, located near the Church.
The historic photo in the previous section depicts the solemn moment of the laying of the first stone by the founder of the Edile Ramasco, which at that time was foreman of the reconstruction, with the square full of people and local authority.
In memory of this event at the side of the Church there is a marble plaque in remembrance of the Surveyor Ramasco Mauro, that was dedicated to him by the authorities and citizenship of Portofiino.
Today the church of St. George, from the name of patron saint of Portofino, is recognized by all as a symbol of beauty history and spirituality.
This work is another one which we strongly hold because it is related to one symbol of the Portofino community and at the same time gave us precise technical specifications to follow in respect of the environment, history and tradition of the place where the works were performed.
The request of the client was the make a conservation of the property according to the dictates of the sovereignty becuase of the fact that the building bounds is part of “cultural heritage”.
