The triumphal arch built in 27BC in the honor to Augustus blends in very well with the stone walls remains which used to surround Rimini (Ariminum, as it was called in Antiquity). These walls were demolished around the 1930s. The setting overtopped by the arch is highly politically and religiously significant: the presence of Jupiter and Apollo symbolizes Rome’s grandeur and Augustus’ magnificence.
