History

Rimini was founded in 268 BC as a Latin colony and was connected both to the Via Flaminia in Rome and to the Via Emilia in Piacenza. It became an Augustan colony and after the fall of Rome in 476, it became part of a Byzantine confederation containing some citations along the Marche coast. Subsequently, it remained under papal rule for many years until it became common in the eleventh century. It was ruled by the Guelph Malatesta family until the 16th century, when it was briefly ruled by Venice. It became part of the Papal States and later became a component of the kingdom of Italy. In the Second World War it was heavily bombed but freed in 1944 by British and Polish troops.

After the 2006 referendum, seven municipalities of Montefeltro were detached from the Province of Pesaro and Urbino (Marche) to join the Province of Rimini on August 15, 2009. The municipalities are Casteldelci, Maiolo, Novafeltria, Pennabilli, San Leo, Sant'Agata Feltria and Talamello.
