history began 800,000 years ago, when prehistorical groups settled
along the coastal areas. The city became very important during the
Roman period, which can be seen in prestigious monuments such as
the Arch of Augustus, Tiberius Bridge and the Amphitheatre.
The crisis in the Roman world was marked by destruction, caused
by invasions and wars, but also by the spread of Christianity: the
famous Council of Rimini was held here in 359.
An idea of what the city was like in the nineteenth
century is provided by the palaces built along Corso d’Augusto
and in particular by the theatre, which was designed by Luigi Poletti
and succeeded in translating into Neoclassical forms the ambitions
of the ruling classes.
However, the biggest revolutionary change was the foundation in
1843 of the first bathing establishment and the
Kursaal -built to host sumptuous social events- which became the
symbols of Rimini. In just a few years the marina underwent a considerable
development and the constructing activity grew rapidly, causing
the city to be called 'the city of small villas'. At the beginning
of the twentieth century, the Grand Hotel, the city’s first
important accommodation facility, was built near the coast and soon
became the emblem of a new kind of tourism.
The city was severely damaged by heavy bombardments during the
Second World War and found itself on the front lines of the battle.
An impressive reconstruction work began after the liberation on
21st September 1944, culminating in the explosive development of
tourism that has created a new urban reality.
