Ascensore Castello d'Albertis-Montegalletto is a combined funicular and lift in Genoa, Italy. It connects via Balbi, near Genova Piazza Principe railway station, to corso Dogali near Albertis Castle, home of the Museo delle Culture del Mondo . It is run by AMT Genova.
The lift was built in 1929 by a private company, the Società Ligure per Impianto ed Esercizio Ascensori, to connect the main railway station of Genoa with Montegalletto, a name now in disuse that indicated the area at the time subject to a large urban expansion. It rose some seventy meters in altitude, but to reach the two cabins that can seat twenty people, it was necessary to set off into the ground along a tunnel of about three hundred meters. The lift was used frequently by local residents as it had a lower ticket price than those of the local tram, bus and trolley; between 1963 and 1965 the owners replaced the lifts with more modern and fast replacements.
