If Sigismondo Malatesta a famous 15th Century Lord of Rimini came back, what would he make of Rimini these days? Apart from some of the obvious differences between the renaissance city of Malatesta and the contemporary city today, (Malatesta's castle is nonetheless standing) the presence of vehicles, modern buildings and electrical lighting would probably amaze him. The most incredible factor though apart from the above would most likely be Rimini's move to the coast.

The city of Rimini in Malatesta's era had its defences inland which ran about what is today known as the centro storico. When Sigismondo Malatesta came to power he decided a change was in order and promptly embarked on a vast building programme which included the Tempio

Malatesta - 1 of the finest examples of neo-classical architecture in Europe - and his enormous and extremely modern fortress, the Rocca Malatesta. The city of Malatesta was built on top of the current city - in other words on the site of the Roman city of Ariminum which was founded in the year 286 B.C. Malatesta used the existing Roman monuments at the time, such as the well-known Ponte di Tiberio and Arco d'Augustoand incorporated them into his city. These famous monuments can nonetheless be noticed today on your trip to Rimini.

Taking a walk around Rimini today, Malatesta would discover the beautiful sandy beaches and their magnetism fairly puzzling during the summer months. Back in Malatesta's day the practice of lying in the sun on the beach and going for a dip would have been strange if not dangerous as the beaches back then had been locations for smuggling and brigandry as they had been away from the city of Rimini's primary defences. Italian cities just like

Rimini were often at war with each other and were in continuous conflict with their neighbours. Malatesta, all through his life was in a continuous energy struggle with Federico da Montefeltro, Lord of Urbino and also the Pope.We also know that Pope Pius II excommunicated Sigismondo in 1460 declaring him a heretic.

So when did Rimini begin to turn out to be a city that is, for Italians and the many vacationers from the world over, synonymous with sun, sea, and sand? In his fascinating study of the history of sea bathing in Rimini - Una costa lunga due secoli (Panozzo Editore), Professor Feruccio Farina, of the University of Urbino, sheds light on 1 of the initial tourist to take a dip in the stunning sea in Rimini. Her name was Elisabeth Kenny, and she was the young Irish wife of a Roman noble. Professor Feruccio Farina says that she is recorded as having visited the city of Rimini in the summer month of August of 1790 (more than 300 years following the death of Sigismondo Malatesta), and stayed for more than two weeks to benefit from the fantastic sea air and waves.

Rimini is one of these classic vacation destinations for Italians and tourist alike. Rimini has been blessed with sun, sand and sea as well as culture. The classic beach holiday and culture holiday coexist right here in Rimini much to the delight of all that arrive here. Rimini is easily reached by many direct flights from many cities about Europe.
