History and Culture...

Near the central Mazzini Place is the home of the poet Giovanni Pascoli, where he was born in December 31, 1855 and where he spent his childhood.

National monument since 1924, was damaged during the Second World War and only the original kitchen remained intact. A plaque lists some verses from the poetry of Pascoli Casa mia ("M'era la casa avanti / tacita al vespro puro / tutta fiorita al muro / di rose rampicanti").

Near the Villa Torlonia were discovered, during excavations for the construction of the emiliano-romagnolo Channel, some Roman kilns, used for the manufacture of bricks.

The plants are large and have a lower part where the fuel burned and an upper part where the bricks to bake were placed.

The little church of the Madonna dell'Acqua was built in 1616 on behalf of the Vicar Bishop of Rimini and later rebuilt as a result of damage caused by bombing during the Second World War.

It is located in the center of San Mauro Pascoli, at the intersection of three roads (Via G. Pascoli, Via Rio Salto and Via G. Tognacci) and borders with the garden of Home Pascoli. Today it houses two plaques dedicated to those who died in San Mauro Pascoli.

The two sides of the church on the road have a similar score, rich in architectural and decorative elements. Inside, the church has a single nave with an apse covered by a barrel vault.
