A story that tells of fishermen and sailors who fought for their identity.
During the second half of the twentieth century, the seafarers began to leave the village which, slowly, began to be pointed out as a disreputable place. The inhabitants decided to unite and organised a party to rebel against the will of the Municipality to reclaim the area, thus wiping out their history.
The first edition took place in 1979, an unforgettable date with great significance… for the first time, that popular district showed everyone, especially the “city” of Rimini, the beauty and value of a village of fishermen and humble people.
The villagers of today have kept alive the values of the sailors of the past and sought integration between different cultures and lifestyles. The tradition of hospitality has not been lost. The village opens its doors to travellers and makes them feel at home.
"Leave a smile or you who pass by."
As you walk through the narrow streets and alleys of the village, you can admire paintings representing Fellini characters and scenes from the life of the villagers, on the walls of the coloured houses.
This tradition of decorating houses began in 1980 during the second edition of the Festa de' Borg, which has become a typical feature of our small Borgo San Giuliano, over time.
In 1994, with the death of Federico Fellini, the Festa de' Borg was dedicated to the great director and on the facades of the houses, painters from Rimini and beyond, brought the great master and his immortal characters to life
