Discovering Fellini’s Rimini starting from his famous films, especially from "AMARCORD", his most autobiographical work:
Piazzale Fellini: the Grand Hotel, a symbol of “forbidden” desires;
Piazzale Boscovich: the pier, the so called "palata", a winter destination for I Vitelloni.
Piazzale C. Battisti: the railway station, the train, a metaphor for every departure.
Corso d’Augusto: the Fulgor cinema, the eye on the world and the encounter with the American cinema, immortalized in Amarcord. The set designer and three-time Academy Award winner Dante Ferretti designed the furnishings that gave new life to the cinema.
Piazza Cavour: the Pigna Fountain, the spell of the peacock: in the Piazza Cavour that was rebuilt in Cinecittà famous sequences of Amarcord are filmed.
Tempio Malatestiano (Malatesta Temple). In via IV novembre, almost opposite the Tempio Malatestiano, was FeBo, the artistic workshop that Fellini opened together with the Rimini painter Demons Bonini.
Even though the famous director has never made any film in this town in Romagna, Rimini was undoubtedly his muse, the city that most influenced his artistic imagination.
