 town, Liguria regione, northwestern Italy. It lies on that part of the Riviera di Ponente known as the Riviera dei Fiori, northeast of San Remo. Formed in 1923 by the union of Porto Maurizio, Oneglia, and several villages, the town took its name from the Torrente Impero (“Impero Stream”) that crosses the town. Porto Maurizio, once a Roman port, became the seat of a Genoese vicar in 1276 and, with Genoa, fell to the French in 1797. Joined to the kingdom of Sardinia in 1814, it was made a provincial capital in 1860. Oneglia originated in 935 from a Roman coastal castle, Castelvecchio, and was a tenure of the Albenga episcopacy from 1100. Sold to the Doria family in 1298, it passed to the house of Savoy in 1576 and was captured by France in 1792. Passing to Piedmont in 1814, it was a provincial capital until 1859.

      Imperia's Neoclassical-style Cathedral of San Maurizio (1779–81) is notable, as are the province building (1910) and city hall (1932). Imperia is an industrial and commercial centre and port on the Genoa-Ventimiglia-Nice railway and road. The town is noted for the production and export of olive oil and flowers. Tourism and the manufacture of spaghetti, perfume, drugs, and cement are also important. Pop. (2006 est.) mun., 40,900.
