Curiosities

In 1284 Moneglia took part, together with the Republic of Genoa, to the successful Battle of Meloria, against Pisa. After the battle the harbor of Pisa was completely destroyed and the iron chains that formerly closed the pier were brought to Genoa and hung up on the wall of Porta Soprana and in many churches of the city as a warning. A piece of the chain, loyalty prize for Moneglia, is still hung on the side wall of Santa Croce Church.

In 2002, the Italian free-diver champion Gianluca Genoni established in the bay in front of the village the Variable Weight World Record diving at 132 meters of depth.
