Museums and Art Treasures

Here are just a few of the most important:
  • Rimini, Museo della Città (City Museum): 40 rooms, more than 800 works, many of which are masterpieces of the 14th-century Riminese school. Works by Ghirlandaio, Guercino, Bellini.
  • Verucchio, Museo Archeologico (Archaeological Museum): located in an ancient monastery dating back to the 13th century, the museum preserves incredible archaeological artefacts from the region's pre-Etruscan necropolises and 400 Villanovan tombs.
  • San Marino, Museo di Stato (State Museum): has finally been reopened after being closed for twenty years. Situated in an historic palazzo, the museum contains almost 5,000 pieces dating back to the Neolithic era up to works of the 1300's by Perugino, Ghirlandaio, Guercino. Sixteen rooms on four floors.
Rimini's invaluable patrimony of artwork can be found not just in its museums, but also at the Tempio Malatestiano, the Church of Sant'Agostino, and at the Pinacoteca, which holds Giovanni Bellini's Pietà amongst other valuable works.
Other excellent works from the 14th-century Riminese school can be found in churches and chapels located throughout the region.
