Ferragosto (Mid-August) in Rimini: the calendar from 10 to 18 August 2019

Published on: 8 August 2019

The countdown to celebrate Ferragosto (mid-August), the summer highlight, has started.

From Saturday 10 August, the night of falling stars, many initiatives will enliven the hottest week of summer both on the beach and in the historic center.

Let's start with the music, the theme of the whole summer, and the appointments of the Rimini Beach Arena on the beach of Miramare (ex area of ​​the Bolognese Summer camp). A rich program that presents for every date the best Italian urban artists and a DJ; but the eve of Ferragosto will be enlived by the show of Independence, near the canal harbor.

The event on the beach, 'A sea of ​​fire' will open the Ferragosto of Rimini.
3 kms of fire, rhythms and shows under the stars of Ferragosto. Fire eaters and dancers, musicians and artisans of taste will alternate along the shore and turn on the night of the 14th of August in a crescendo of rhythms, flavors, flames, shows and fireworks on the sea.

Not only music and entertainment, but also culture. The "Luigi Tonini" City Museum and the Domus del Chirurgo (via L.Tonini, 1 and Piazza Ferrari) will also remain open on August 15th (10am-7.00pm). An opportunity to visit the eighteenth-century Jesuit College, home to the City Museum, which brings together the historical, artistic and archaeological heritage of Rimini, from its origins to the twentieth century including the nearby archaeological site of Piazza Ferrari with the remains of the Domus del Chirurgo, internationally known for the discovery of the richest set of surgical instruments that came to us from antiquity.

Also Castel Sismondo will be opened on 15 August (Ferragosto) with the exhibition curated by Luca Beatrice 'Revolutions. The art of the new world - 30 years later ' while the adjacent square named after Francesca da Rimini will host the last events of the summer concert festival organized by the "Filarmonica Città di Rimini”.

On August 15 also the newFulgor cinema can be visited thanks to the guided visit on Thursday evening organized by Discover Rimini. Fulgor is perhaps the most famous cinema in the world as protagonist of the life and works of Federico Fellini and today redesigned by the Oscar winner Dante Ferretti. As always, the Galli Theater will be the center of attention with guided tours on Friday and the awarding of the Rudolf Noureev Contest, which sees Carla Fracci as honor guest of the evening of Sunday 11 August, while the new square on the water at the Tiberius Bridge will host the Tiberio CinePicnic festival with all the films of the final 5 days of the La Vela Illuminata film review 2019.

And, after mid-August, the 'Meeting per l’amicizia fra i popoli' and the 'Sagra Musicale Malatestiana', while among the September events stand out the MotoGP with a week of dedicated events, the 'Italian Bike Festival' and at the end of September Giardini d'Autore (20 - 22 September).
