Here the sea is a way of life, it is the setting for Fellini`s films, it is the myth of summer fun that is renewed every day, it is the magic of winter mists. But before all this, Rimini was a much sought-after and disputed city, the "capital" of a seignory, that of the Malatestas, a crossroads of cultures of which it preserves ancient and precious testimonies.
Throughout the year a stay in Rimini is synonymous with fun and culture. Its art treasures include unique masterpieces ranging from the Roman period to the Renaissance. A place to get to know by following the impressive and evocative traces left by twenty centuries of history such as Augustus Arch, Tiberius Bridge, Sigismondo Castle, the Malatesta Temple, the Roman Tre Martiri Square or the medieval Cavour Square, ending with the City Museum that preserves its past, through over 1500 works, and the archaeological site of the 'Surgeon`s House' with the exceptional surgical-pharmaceutical equipment, which has come down to us intact from the Roman era.
Rimini is also the city of the "Amintore Galli" Theatre, a neoclassical masterpiece by Luigi Poletti, inaugurated by Giuseppe Verdi in 1857 with L'Aroldo; one of the most significant examples of nineteenth-century theatrical architecture, damaged by the bombings of 1943 and now, after decades of neglect and a total renovation, once again open to the public. A concentration of beauty that the city has been recovering and enhancing for some years now and which will be completed in 2020 with the inauguration of the Fellini Museum.
A barefoot walk along the seashore, for a chat or a meditation, is certainly an enthralling experience every day of the year, in the excellent summer or in the solitary melancholy of the winter season.
