Palazzo Ricciardelli, now Ruffi - Briolini, is a historic palace located in the splendid setting of Rimini's historical center, close by the famous Fulgor Cinema and the Tiberius Bridge. The palace, dating back to the 15th Century, was initially a sumptuous Renaissance residence, with an imposing courtyard with a double order of arches on columns. Despite the bombings of World War II, it retains something of its ancient appearance both internally and externally. The entire building has recently been totally restored and, thanks to skillful restoration, has managed to retain its former magnificence and beauty. Since 2021, it has been a Headquarters Organizational Unit (UOS) of the Department of the Arts.
