Rimini: An Artistic Stroll From the 1300s to the Modern Day
That’s right, beyond its famous milestones and monuments, and beyond the ruins and testimonies of ancient Roman and the Renaissance era – and in addition to the opening of the PART and the soon-to-be-complete Fellini Museum – art has always merged seamlessly with the culture and history of this ancient city, which is endowed with a rare sense of creativity.
The City Museum and its adjoining cloister – home to some fascinating Roman Lapidary en plein aire– is certainly a good place to start a tour of the artworks on display in the local area. Examples include fourteenth-century artefacts to artworks by Cagnacci, large archaeological pieces, and art works by Ghirlandaio, Guercino and Guido Reni. The many creations on display will take you on a pleasant and exciting journey back in time through the wonderful history of Italian art.
However,there are also plenty of wonderful artworks on display outside the city walls and museums. Street art decorates the walls in Borgo San Giuliano – with its winding, picturesque streets – and belong to a colourful kaleidoscope of murals inspired by Fellini.
The city is also home to a number of artworks and graffiti pieces by contemporary and internationally renowned street artists such as the locally-born Eron, whose artworks are appreciated all over the world and are just waiting to be admired on the city’s walls.
