  • What about ... beautiful rock in the center of the town. The evening is lit by fantastic light effects. They are often organized events and meetings inside. Inside you will also find the Archaeological Museum of Forlimpopoli. To see

  • Excellent example of military architecture well integrated into the urban fabric and activities. Outwardly beautiful, impressive and well preserved houses inside the Teatro Verdi (which we were able to visit), also known for the famous eruption of the Smuggler. Located inside the Museum Aldini besides town halls and more.

  • Interesting structure is the fortress of Forlimpopoli also known as rocca albornoziana, to remember who ordered the construction, the building overlooks the today's Piazza Garibaldi and easily accessible. The fortress was e-adjusted map over the years between 1360 and 1365 by Cardinal Egidio Albornoz, cardinal who received from the Pope the charge to regain the lands of Romagna. Actually in Forlimpopoli, well before the arrival of the army led by Albornoz, there existed a fortification guarding the city walls. The Ordelaffi, Lords of the city, in 1356 they did restore and strengthen the fortifications, but in 1360 the Papal army after a long siege, razed nearly the entire city, as the cardinal allowed the soldiers to loot the homes and pillage and kill the inhabitants. The fortress was immediately rebuilt on the foundations of previous, including existing buildings, as the old church which served as a cathedral. The structure was completed in a few years, in 1371 is already nominated for la rocca Salvaterra in the report "Descriptio provinciæ Romandiolæ", edited by Cardinal Anglico de Grimoard. The City returned under the rule of Sinibaldo Ordelaffi and decided to reinforce the building. After several passages the rocca became property of the municipality. The building has a square shape, comes with 4 circular bastions places in each of the corners. The southern curtain is reinforced by the donjon which safeguards the entrance below. Originally, to strengthen the positions upon entry, was erected a ravelin which reinforce access to the fortress. The ravelin is destroyed with time and today no trace remains. The two towers that look East have circular, archaeological excavations have shown that originally had transformed a circular and polygonal shape towards the middle of the fifteenth century. Today the Fort is home to major institutions, such as the archaeological museum and the Teatro Verdi (where he was with his men the brigand Stefano Pelloni to sequester them citizenship gathered in order to gather all). In the summer, the courtyard hosts cultural events and important musical events.
