Rimini: Tempio Malatestiano

The Tempio Malatestiano is one of the masterpieces of Renaissance architecture. The facade, the work of Leon Battista Alberti, is inspired by a triumphal arch in ancient Rome, while the side walls recalls a Roman bridge, in reference to the two principal monuments of the city. The temple was conceived as the mausoleum of Sigismondo Malatesta, lord of Rimini, whose political misfortunes did not allow him to complete the building.
