Why visit it
Beautiful countryside those of Coriano, made up of fields with valuable crops such as vines and olives, with farmhouses and inhabited and well-preserved ancient villages. The feeling for those who pass through this part of the Malatesta Seignory is that of being in a rich land where people have lived well for millennia, as indeed evidenced by the finds and monuments found here.
The sea is just a few steps away, and toward the mountains we find the characteristic profile of Mount Titano of the nearby Republic of San Marino. Coriano is the main center of the Marano Creek Valley, which runs from the hills on the border between the Marche and San Marino down a 30-kilometer stretch to the beaches between Riccione and Rimini.
Today this valley offers a surprising island of greenery, close to major centers, excellently equipped for many outdoor activities.
It is one of the largest military cemeteries in Italy (1939 fallen soldiers) and is considered a garden cemetery due to the variety of flowers that adorn it. Its construction was the dramatic result of the collapse of the 'Gothic Line', which ended the Second World War. The Commonwealth authorities take care of the cemetery.
One of the few buildings that survived the war dates back to the 19th century and was designed by Alessandro Ferri, a pupil of Luigi Poletti, father of Rimini's Teatro Galli.
This museum and art gallery is a journey through the achievements of the beloved motorcycle rider Marco Simoncelli (Sic ).
In front of the museum it is possible to stop at the monument dedicated to Sic and see every Sunday at sunset The Flame that lights up for 58 seconds.
Coriano Castle, built in the 13th century by the Malatesta family of Rimini, is still a fascinating place, set in a beautiful rural context. Of the ancient nucleus, imposing ruins of the fortified enclosure remain, polygonal in shape, with scarp walls and curtain walls with corbels. The 14th-century tower is imposing and inside is the icehouse-novar, one of the largest in Romagna. The stone coat of arms of the Sassatelli family of Imola, who received the castle as a gift from the Pope from 1528 to 1580, stands out on the entrance door.
