Cesenatico

Cesenatico and the sea are one and the same thing.

ancient coloured sails of the Marine Museum, one of very few in Italy, which greet the people who arrive and leave tell of this.
Those sails, those old boats, that port which in 1502 Leonardo da Vinci, "general architect and engineer" studied and surveyed on commission of Cesare Borgia (the original of this drawing is preserved in the National Library in Paris), are a synthesis and story of Cesenatico. Historical and archeological sources (preserved in the museum which annexes the Town Library) tell a Roman settlement in these parts.

As far as we know, Cesenatico was founded in 1302:

nearby Cesena needed a port for its traffic and perhaps for military use. These were hard times. After a succession of events Cesenatico developed above all into a fishing port. When the dominio of Borgia came to end, the town fell under the Papal State. And it is not by chance that the "white broam" (a kind of fish) is called "papal" in Italian, because the huge catches of the fish, duly salted and preserved, were destined for the markets of Rome and therefore the Pope.The history clocks sound out other appointments on the port of Cesenatico.

On the night of 2nd August 1849, Garibaldi with Anita, Ugo Bassi and other patriots arrived here; they had escaped from Rome and were heading for Venice, hunted both over land and sea by their pursuers.

Cesenatico has been, for one hundred years, both an important and renown tourist location.
