Famous People from Rimini

It’s difficult to remember some times, but Rimini is actually quite a small city – despite the fact that, since the ’60s onwards, each summer it swells to a much larger size, and because it holds such a place in the Italian imagination. Notwithstanding the fact that it’s a relatively small city, Rimini has plenty of famous sons and daughters. We’ve collected some of the more notable ones here, for you to get a glimpse of the people who have helped to shape the city.
