Overview

Located beside Piazza Ferrari, the City Museum displays in more than 700 works of Rimini's 2000 years of history in 40 different galleries. The exhibition building has ancient origins itself: having been built in the 18th Century as Jesuit monastery, it was used as a hospital, first military and then civilian. In the inner courtyard there is an epigraph collection of about one hundred Roman inscription which, together with a splendid exhibit of mosaics, constitutes an important part of the archeological nucleus. On the first floor there are frescoes, ceramics and paintings on wood from the 15th and 16th Centuries that tell the story of Renaissance art, amongst them Giovanni Bellini's famous Pietà. On the second floor art and sculpture produced in Rimini between the 17th and 19th Centuries are on display and the works of local artist Guido Cagnacci can also be found.
