History & Vision
According to Roman mythology, Janus is the god of gates, doors, endings, and time. He is caricaturised with two faces looking in opposite directions, symbolising his view into the past and future. He is commonly remembered for his two namesakes, the month January and the Northern-Italian city Genoa in Italy. Genoa has been leading the trade industry in the Mediterranean Sea during the XIIth century and is the birth place of Cristoforo Columbus who, with the support of the Spanish kingdom, discovered Americas in the XVth century.
