Until 1861 the quarter, at that time still an independent municipality, was known as Quarto al Mare , but was then renamed Quarto dei Mille (German: Quarto of the thousand ) in honor of the train of the thousand .

In 1926 Quarto lost its independence and, according to the plans of the fascists, was incorporated into the Ligurian capital by a Greater Genoa .

Today the district belongs to the Munizip IX Levante and has a population of 8288. Until 1997 Quarto was part of the district of Sturla-Quarto .
