Piazzetta Teatini

1) Piazzetta Teatini

A small and cozy corner of historical Rimini, Piazzetta Teatini was one of Fellini's “secret hideout” places. Due to his early success and fame, the film director felt uncomfortable when returning to his hometown. Because of this, Fellini's visits to Rimini were usually kept secret to everyone except close friends and relatives. The head of the Fellini Foundation and a close friend of his, Sergio Zavoli says that Federico often arrived in Rimini at night and together with his friend Luigi "Titta" Benzi went to Piazzetta Teatini to talk while kicking around an empty can. They used to talk until the break of dawn and when the city awoke, Fellini was gone.

Cinema Fulgor on the Corso d'Augusto is the place where young Fellini saw his first movie. It was here that he fell in love with the cinema and used to spend long hours after school watching movies.

This old movie theatre has remained almost unchanged since the days of Fellini's youth. There is a project about its restoration and its inclusion in the Hall of Cinema dedicated to the great Maestro.

Grand Hotel Rimini

Grand Hotel Rimini is an elegant historical landmark. During its existence of more than 100 years, the hotel has seen celebrities like aristocrats, Nobel Laureates, politicians and kings.
