Talking to our guests, I often hear people say:
‘’I was convinced that Rimini was just about beaches and clubs, but instead I visited a mesmerizing historical city centre that has nothing to envy to those of cities like Ferrara and Mantua’’
I could print a book as big as a dictionary with a page for every statement similar to this one.
Why does this stereotype exist?
Because it is an inheritance from the 80/90’s.
Rimini is associated with the calmness of the sea and the transgression of the clubs.
Those were years where Rimini was a mass destination and always mentioned in newspapers or on tv.
This message, uninterruptedly sent, soaked in the head of Italians and started a conviction.
A conviction is an indissoluble thought that is never questioned.
A sure thing.
For many people this is what Rimini is. Nothing more.
The fault is, above it all, ours of us operators that we have never talked about ‘’the other Rimini “.
Which I personally consider the ‘’real Rimini’’ and now I will try to school it to you.
The city centre has become a gem that we proudly show off to the whole world.
I’m suggesting you to take a bike at Savoia Hotel, cycle and visit it.
You will be fascinated by the history of Rimini.
You will discover the Roman Rimini and Rimini of the Renaissance.
The Roman Rimini is told by:
- Arco D’Augusto
- Porta Montanara
- Tiberius Bridge
- Roman Amphitheater
- Domus del Chirurgo
Look at these beautiful images:
The Rimini of the Renaissance time is told by the following monuments:
- Castel Sismondo
- Malatesta Temple
Closing your eyes you will be able to hear a Roman legionary walking on Tiberius Bridge.
Or you will see yourself at the court of Sigismondo Malatesta, inside Castel Sismondo and relive one of the most beautiful periods for the city.
And I still haven’t told you about the brand new Teatro Galli, that was inaugurated on October 28th 2019.
This is a glimpse of the interiors of this theatre, originally inaugurated in 1857 by Giuseppe Verdi and unfortunately destroyed in 1943 by the bombings of the World War II.
Now it has resumed life and has been rebuilt as it was back in the days .
It will become a protagonist of the events of the city.
Keep in mind that the Galli theatre is right in front of Castel Sismondo and in the future that area will be completely pedestrianized and transformed into a beautiful green lawn.
We had a brief preview of what it will look like during the ‘’Giardini d’Autore’’ event.
The whole area was covered by nurseries with flowers and plants.
Look at the pictures.
As you can see, it’s really a nice picture.
I think the title of this post might be clearer to you now.
And I haven’t told you anything about Federico Fellini yet, about the Fulgor cinema and everything that will be done to celebrate the great film director riminese.
For now I’m just showing you two images of the cinema inaugurated on January 20th 2018, after the restyling by the screenwriter Dante Ferretti.
It is a cinema of essay open every day and it will be a part of the Federico Fellini Museum.
As you can see in Rimini there is really so much to see and do.
We are working to show you all the beauty that in these years you have never seen or heard about.
Don’t waste time.
