Celebrazioni Malatestiane 2017 – 2018

Until October 2018
Rimini, different venues
Rimini celebrates the 600 years of Sigismondo Pandolfo Malatesta. The birth of humanism

The mind, the heart and the body: these are the three focuses of the initiatives that Rimini Municipality has defined to celebrate the anniversary of birth of an important figure in Rimini's history, symbolically linked to the Malatesta Temple, the Sismondo Castle and the City.
The calendar, that began 19th June to celebrate Sigismondo Malatesta's birthday, continues throughout the year and beyond, until 9th October 2018, which is the 550th anniversary of his death. The program combines culture, leisure and sport initiatives to animate the new spaces, the city and the territory, which are ideally related to the project of urban requalification that began 2011,
During the summer, a series of initiatives and events have been proposed, such as exhibitions, conventions, concerts and other events.
Until 29th October there is possible to visit the exhibition 'Ladies, Cavaliers, Arms and Motors', a comparison between the suits of today's motor riders with the armours of the Renaissance knights in the foyer of the Galli Theater.
From December, the FAR gallery will host the photo exhibition 'Lumen': the reliefs by Agostino di Duccio in the Chapel of the Planets in the Malatesta Temple, photographed in candlelight.
The concerts of the Sagra Malatestiana Music Festival, 'Musics for Sigismondo', continue with two concerts in the suggestive setting of the Sismondo Castle.
In the Sismondo Castle is also proposed a studying convention, from 27th to 29th October, 'Difesa e vita quotidiana nelle fortezze dal medioevo all’età moderna’ (Defense and daily life in fortresses from the Middle Ages to the Modern Age) organized by Istituto Italiano dei Castelli.
In addition, at the City Museum, Wednesday 15th November, there is scheduled a lectio magistralis, 'L’amore del tempo di Sigismondo’ (Love in Sigismondo's Era), held by Massimo Ciavolella, University of California in Los Angeles.

The exhibition, organised by the Museo della Figurina, born from the Panini borthers’ passion for collection, has twenty sections. Each one elaborates a feature of sport, ranging from Olympic Games and football World Cup champions to challenges between great rivals, through yesterday and today legends and USA stars. However, a few athletes became famous for their defeats, rather than their talent. They are the so-called ‘bidoni’ (flops). Others owe their fame not to shiny careers, but to being featured in rare picture cards; others are remembered for their appearance in films, whether successful or not. Finally, even delicate topics, such as racism and discrimination in sport, are described in a brand-new perspective.
