Recco (Latin Ricina / Recina) is a comune in the province of Genoa, region of Liguria, Italy. It is known for its focaccia al formaggio (focaccia with cheese) which is made with Crescenza. The consortium that dictates the official recipe of the focaccia, supposedly the result of a Saracen attack in the 1200s, is seeking the European Union PGI status for the recipe. Also famous is the September 8 fireworks festival honoring the Virgin Mary. The town is also known for its successful waterpolo team, Pro Recco. During WWII Recco's railway was bombed by the allies, destroying the town. It was rebuilt in the late forties and early fifties.
