Colle di Covignano, one of the most breath taking places over the town of Rimini, hosts one of the most singular Museums that puts together rare artifacts from different parts of the world, such as China and New Guinea. That's an extremely important testimony of Franciscan monks' presence around the world. Most of the sculptures and findings were collected over the past 50 years. From China you can admire little bronze Buddha statues, brocade clothes, ivory sculptures, precious coins dating from year 1000 till our days. Javelins, arrows, drums, masks and various ornaments coming from New Guinea are also on display along with male pelvic cases and female loinclothes. Pre-Columbian findings as well as important artifacts from European and Rimini's culture are set on display. Modern art sculptures, French Napoleonic dishes, Murano glasses and Faenza's ceramics make it one of the most various and attractive museum in the Riviera.
