Things to do in Rimini: discover the 2018 events calendar

Cinema Fulgor
Castel Sismondo and piazza Malatesta

2018 is a special year for the city of Rimini: a year in which the redevelopment will be completed and the cultural construction sites launched in the last years will be returned to Rimini citizens and its guests. After the new square on the water in the basin of the Tiberius Bridge and the Malatesta Square returned to its Renaissance perspective, Rimini has inaugurated the Cinema Fulgor, the most famous cinema in the world, on Fellini's birthday (January 20). The Galli Theatre, whose reconstruction work continues at full speed, will be completed at the end of summer 2018.
Here is a brief taste of some of the main events that will punctuate 2018, this really special year for Rimini. A calendar that is 'under construction' and that will continuously have important updates.

19 - 20 January 2018
Rimini Fulgor Cinema
Happy birthday Federico! The Cinema Fulgor reopens
On the birthday of Federico Fellini, the Fulgor, the most famous cinema in the world owing to the great Master who watched here his first film on his father's lap, is returned to the city of Rimini at the end of the renovation of the historic Palazzo Valloni. A unique cinematographic hall set by Dante Ferretti and brought back to that ancestral and magical dimension that makes Fulgor the very symbol of cinema as the art of evasion and dream. In the scenographic set-up he designed for Fulgor, Ferretti has poured all his love for cinema and its history with its unusual setting that pays homage to American cinema of the thirties and forties, when the films were bigger than life, and that plays and is measured with the legend of this hall and the genius that made it immortal.
The programming of the Cinema Fulgor will be curated by the company Khairos srl, and includes a selection of the best quality films of new release and an important part of the programming will be dedicated to the "Maestro". The program will also host reviews, monographs and retrospectives on the various currents and periods of cinema: from its origins to the arrival of color, from the birth of the colossal to the advent of sound, from the golden age of Hollywood to that of European productions of post-war period, from the explosion of the 60s to the present day.
The aim is to transform the Fulgor into a heterogeneous place of culture and therefore it will be at the same time content - the dream, the magic, the passion of cinema - but also container, a collective place, where to meet, compare, have fun together, being able to enjoy, as well as films in programming, also exhibitions, presentations, concerts. With this in mind, Cinema Fulgor will be open every day from the afternoon, and often also in the morning with daytime projections dedicated to schools and families.  Info 0541 57197
