THE CITY OF FELLINI
Federico Fellini talked of Rimini only after he had moved away from it. He defined it as "a dimension of memory”, experienced as a mixture of nostalgia and a desire to run away. To find the dreamlike atmosphere that the great director talked about you need to take a walk, in winter, along the coast, starting from the Grand Hotel, which in "Amarcord" stands as a symbol of the exotic and luxury. Stop at the Fulgor cinema, in Corso d’Augusto, where Fellini he saw his first film as a child and where he worked as a poster designer as a teenager. From Fulgor, it is only a short walk to the village of San Giuliano, with its colourful houses overlooking the narrow alleys. This protected, sheltered and quiet corner of Rimini is where Fellini loved to walk and where today murals recall the work of the great master.
