Bogliasco (Ligurian: Boggiasco) is a comune (municipality) in the Metropolitan City of Genoa in the Italian region Liguria, located about 11 kilometres (7 mi) southeast of Genoa. Together with the comuni of Camogli, Recco, Pieve Ligure and Sori, it is part of the so-called Golfo Paradiso. Economy is mostly based on tourism; agriculture include production of olives.
As archaeological findings proved, the area of Bogliasco was inhabited since Paleolithic and Mesolithic times; the Romans built a bridge here (the current structure dates to the 13th century AD). After the fall of the Western Roman Empire and the Byzantine and Lombard domination, Liguria was conquered by Charlemagne; the burgh of Bogliasco fell under the Republic of Genoa after the year 1182, suffering numerous raids from Saracen pirates. The town was destroyed by Venetian galleys in 1432.
