Nascita del Turismo di Riccione - Gli ospizi marini: un'eccellenza riccionese

The beginning of tourism in the town of Riccione, the use of sea water for curing diseases, the building of hospitals. Book launch by the author Fosco Rocchetta


The name (in local pronunciation Arcaton) comes from the Greek and Byzantine occupation dated back to the sixth century AD: "Archeion" is the name of a plant, the burr, which still grows spontaneously in some areas of the beach now occupied by the bathing establishments but which was once abundant on the desert shore of Riccione.
