If Sigismondo Malatesta a well-known 15th Century Lord of Rimini came back, what would he make of Rimini these days? Apart from some of the obvious variations in between the renaissance city of Malatesta and the contemporary city today, (Malatesta's castle is still standing) the presence of cars, contemporary buildings and electrical lighting would probably amaze him. The most amazing factor although apart from the above would probably be Rimini's move to the coast.

The city of Rimini in Malatesta's era had its defences inland which ran around what is today 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 integrated the Tempio

Malatesta - 1 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 utilized the current Roman monuments at the time, including the famous Ponte di Tiberio and Arco d'Augustoand incorporated them into his city. These well-known monuments can still be noticed these days on your trip to Rimini.

Taking a walk about Rimini today, Malatesta would find the stunning sandy beaches and their magnetism quite 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 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 had been often at war with each other and had been in continuous conflict with their neighbours. Malatesta, throughout his life was in a continuous power 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 numerous tourists from the globe more than, 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 beautiful 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 wonderful sea air and waves.
