Rimini: The End of the Via Flaminia


[image ALT: An inscribed statue base (it looks Roman) in the middle of a small flower market at the edge of a large empty square.]

This inscription on the Piazza Tre Martiri, successor to the Roman Forum,
marks the spot where Julius Caesar is said to have harangued his troops after crossing the Rubicon.

The Via Flaminia enters town thru the Arco di Augusto — which was much more Roman as recently as 1937.

The end of the Flaminia can be placed in the Forum which, until World War II, was called the Piazza Giulio Cesare, but is now the Piazza dei 3 Martiri in memory of three Italian patriots hanged by the Germans as they retreated in 1944. Of ancient Rome not a trace, excepting this inscription.
