    Church of Sant'Agostino

    Rimini - Centro storico

    This church is worth visiting for various reasons; thearchitecture of the large auditorium was transformed with precious stuccoes, ancones and frescoes in the 17th and 18th centuries, althoughthe general structure and its tall bell tower date from the 13th century.Furthermore, the apsidal part houses two wonderful cycles of frescoesby the “14th-century School of Rimini”.

    The bell tower chapel narrates thelife of the Virgin Mary and the apse the life of John the Evangelist, whilston the far end wall there is a mighty Enthroned Christ and a majestic andgentle Virgin with Child.

    The decorations in this church, probably by 14th-centuryRimini-based artists, perhaps the brothers Giovanni, Giuliano and Zangolo, active in the early decades of the century, also include a Crucifix paintedon a wood panel, now on the right wall of the nave and a large, fragmentedfresco of the Last Judgement, now housed in the Municipal Museum.By ideally reuniting and positioning these works we have anidea of the “educational” and catechetical function those responsible forcreating them and those who commissioned them sought to achieve and thespirituality of the message transmitted through the painted figures.
