Rimini. From the Middle Ages to the Renaissance
If Piazza Tre Martiri was the heart of the Roman world, Piazza Cavour was the hub of the medieval town. The protagonist is the Palazzo dell’Arengo (1204), next to the Palazzo del Podestà (1330) and in front of the statue of Pope Paul V (1614). Leonardo da Vinci was thrilled by the sound of the water produced by the 15 spouts of the Pigna Fountain
From Piazza Cavour you reach Piazza Malatesta. The mighty Castel Sismondo (1437) is the classic Renaissance manor, and was designed by the same Sigismondo, who had Brunelleschi among his consultants.
Signed by Leon Battista Alberti, the Tempio Malatestiano (1450), a masterpiece of the Italian Renaissance, contains a series of treasures: a Crucifix by Giotto, a fresco by Piero della Francesca, the precious bas-reliefs of the angels playing on a blue background.
