Marina Centro

Published on: 22 October 2018

The first beach resort was  established here in 1843. Today, Piazzale Fellini, with its park and the Fontana dei quattro cavalli (Fountain of the four horses), is a central venue in summer period, a corner always full of life, a scenario for special events. The Grand Hotel is the emblem of Marina Centro, a liberty style national monument and mythical place of Fellini’s adolescence, immortalized in 'Amarcord'. Over the centuries, before becoming a holiday capital, Rimini was an important port. Today its 'palata' - as in the local dialect - is the most popular promenade, especially at sunset, when the fishing boats return, followed by flocks of seagulls.
