If Sigismondo Malatesta a well-known 15th Century Lord of Rimini came back, what would he make of Rimini today? Apart from some of the apparent variations in between the renaissance city of Malatesta and the contemporary city today, (Malatesta's castle is still standing) the presence of vehicles, modern buildings and electrical lighting would probably amaze him. The most amazing thing although 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 these days known as the centro storico. When Sigismondo Malatesta came to power he decided a alter was in order and promptly embarked on a vast developing programme which included the Tempio

Malatesta - one of the finest examples of neo-classical architecture in Europe - and his huge and very modern fortress, the Rocca Malatesta. The city of Malatesta was built on leading of the existing 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 still be seen these days on your trip to Rimini.

Taking a walk around Rimini these days, Malatesta would find the stunning sandy beaches and their magnetism fairly puzzling throughout the summer time 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 harmful as the beaches back then had been places 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, throughout 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 start to become a city that is, for Italians and the numerous vacationers from the globe 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 one of the first 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 getting visited the city of Rimini in the summer time month of August of 1790 (more than 300 years after the death of Sigismondo Malatesta), and stayed for more than two weeks to benefit from the wonderful sea air and waves.

Rimini is 1 of these classic holiday destinations for Italians and tourist alike. Rimini has been blessed with sun, sand and sea as nicely as culture. The classic beach vacation and culture holiday coexist here in Rimini a lot to the delight of all that arrive here. Rimini is easily reached by numerous direct flights from many cities about Europe.
