The coast of Rimini - birthplace of Federico Fellini - is still marked by the package holiday industry and its boom in the 1960s. Northern Europeans, predominantly Germans, spent their summer holidays here. Ranging along almost 15 kilometres of "furnished" beach, some 1,400 hotels were built well into the 1970s. Furnished - to quote the tour company brochures - means 40,000 sunshades with loungers for hire, changing cubicles, playgrounds, showers and kiosks. Then come the numerous restaurants, bars and discotheques. 

Since then other destinations, such as Mallorca, have surpassed Italy's Adriatic coast's standing. The following photos reveal my impressions at the end of the season in November, when apart from three hotels and a few restaurants everything was closed. The soft light of the overcast November sky together with the pastel colours of the buildings call forth a special aesthetic and a morbid charm.
