Neighborhood: Centro storico
Overview

After crossing the old town center on Corso d'Augusto as far as the Ponte di Tiberio, take a look at the Marecchia river park to the north and at the port canal to the south, then enter the medieval district of San Giuliano. A series of narrow alleys form a labyrinth in which even the locals often get lost. But it doesn't matter if you do because on every street corner you can admire murals dedicated to the life and films of the great film director Federico Fellini. The murals were painted by local artists on the elegant small houses carefully looked after and decorated with flowers. Every two years the unmissable street festival "Festa de Borg" is held. If you wish to continue the Fellini theme, you can walk on to the town cemetery not too far away in Via Cipressi where Fellini and his wife Giulietta Masini are buried under the monument "La Grande Prua" in the form of a sail by the sculptor Arnaldo Pomodoro.
