International Folklore Festival: Italy, Rimini Riviera (Aug 2015)

FolkWay – International Folklore Festival – Rimini, Italy, August 2015

City Overview

Situated in northern Italy, the Province of Rimini lies in the southeastern zone of Emilia Romagna. Well-equipped seaside resorts, borgoes and villages rich in art and history, gently-rolling hills just a stone’s throw away from the water, a unique artisan tradition and – one should not forget – high-quality cuisine and gastronomic products are the elements that have made the Rimini Riviera one of Europe’s most frequented vacation spots for over 160 years.

The secret to such long-lasting success? Not only the cordiality and hospitality of the area’s inhabitants, but also the landscape’s beauty, culture and entertainment offerings, and a prized historical-artistic heritage. The traces left by personages the likes of Leon Battista Alberti and Piero della Francesca lend us an idea of the incredible transformation (from both a social and cultural standpoint) effected by these geniuses of art and architecture.
