The Metropolitana di Genova is a light metro consisting of a single line that connects the center of Genoa with the suburb of Rivarolo, to the north-west of the city centre. The service is currently managed by Azienda Mobilità e Trasporti, which provides public transport for the City of Genoa, Italy.

It is a 5 km-long standard gauge (1435 mm) double line and is electrified at 750 volts DC. It has a direct connection with the underground suburban station under Trenitalia's mainline railway station, Principe. It was opened between the stations of Brin and Dinegro in June 1990 for the World Cup of Football and extended to Principe in 1992, San Giorgio-Caricamento in 2003 and De Ferrari in 2005
