Rimini Ā is a city in theĀ Emilia-RomagnaĀ region ofĀ northern ItalyĀ and capital city of theĀ Province of Rimini. It sprawls along theĀ Adriatic Sea, on the coast between the riversĀ MarecchiaĀ (the ancientĀ Ariminus) andĀ AusaĀ (ancientĀ Aprusa). It is one of the most famous seaside resorts inĀ Europe, thanks to its 15-kilometre-long (9Ā mi) sandy beach, over 1,000 hotels, and thousands of bars, restaurants and discos. The first bathing establishment opened in 1843. An art city with ancient Roman and Renaissance monuments, Rimini is also the birthplace of the famous film directorĀ Federico Fellini.

The city was founded by the Romans in 268Ā BC. Throughout Roman times, Rimini was a key communications link between the north and south of the peninsula. On its soil, Roman emperors erected monuments such as theĀ Arch of AugustusĀ and theĀ Tiberius BridgeĀ to mark the beginning and the end of the Decumanus of Rimini. During the Renaissance, the city benefited from the court of theĀ House of Malatesta, which hosted artists likeĀ Leonardo da VinciĀ and produced works such as theĀ Tempio Malatestiano. The main monuments in Rimini are the Tiberius Bridge and theĀ Arch of Augustus.

In the 19th century, Rimini was one of the most active cities on the revolutionary front, hosting many of the movements seeking to achieveĀ Italian unification. In the course ofĀ World War II, the city was the scene of numerous clashes and bombings, but also of a fierce partisan resistance that earned it the honour of a gold medal for civic valour. In recent years it has become one of the most important sites for trade fairs and conferences in Italy.

Riminiā€™s urban area is home to 149,403 people, while approximately 325,000 live in theĀ eponymous province, making it the twenty-eighth largest city in Italy.
