Art cities in Romagna

The most beautiful art cities in Romagna

There are plenty of art cities in Romagna, this land is in fact rich at places that have formed an artistic and cultural heritage of great importance ever since the time of the ancient Romans.

Romagna, a land all for you to discover

Romagna is a “heartfelt” territorial entity without definite geographical boundaries, but rather a set of traditions, ways of being, history and culture that give a sense of belonging to its inhabitants. The wealth of this territory chiefly resides in its variety: here you have everything, the hills, the mountains, as well as the seaside, and maybe some people don’t know that besides seaside tourism there are also important art destinations in Romagna, such as the very Rimini; its historical center in fact is rich at findings of great value such as the House (domus) of the Surgeon, the only consulting room of ancient Rome that has come intact to us;, or the Arch of Augustus and the bridge of Tiberius, which are perfectly kept. Not to mention Ravenna, a greatly historically and artistically important town, above all for its mosaics and for the grave of the Great Poet, or Forlì with its San Domenico Museums.

Cesenatico

Cesenatico with its leonardesque haven is certainly one of the most beautiful art cities of Romagna; Leonardo da Vinci made an “on-the-spot inspection” on the Canal Port of the town to improve it and still nowadays its inside stretch follows its drawings closely.

Santarcangelo

Santarcangelo is the home town of the famous poet and writer Tonino Guerra. In his honor, a museum was created that contains over 60 works by the artist and a rich multimedia section with all his screenplays and movies, as well as interviews and readings.

Pennabilli

Pennabilli hosts the spread museum “I luoghi dell’anima” ideated by Tonino Guerra; downtown there are artistic installations such as the garden of the forgotten fruits, the street of meridians, the angel with moustaches, and the petrified garden.

Just outside the border

The territories, which were disputed in the Middle Ages between the powerful dynasties of the Malatestas and the Montefeltros from the duchy of Urbino, have inherited vestiges of inestimable historical value. It may suffice to think of Gradaa, still enclosed within the double wall circle and protected by its impressive castle where, according to the legend, Paolo and Francesca died for their love; or the very Urbino, defined as the “cradle of the Renaissance”, where Raffaello Sanzio was born, whose entire center belongs to the UNESCO sites; or also Pesaro, the home town of the composer of the Nineteenth century, Gioacchino Rossini.

The Malatesta Library of Cesena

In Cesena there is the only humanistic monastic library perfectly kept both as far as its buildings and its book heritage are concerned; it is the Malatesta library, which was founded in the middle of the 15th century and was the first civic library of Europe.
