The seafront heading towards the port can boast the Grand Hotel, an Art-Nouveau building (1908) designed by Paolito Somazzi. This is one of the favourite places in Fellini's imagery, as shown by the Maestro's own words: "the Grand Hotel was a fable of wealth, luxury and eastern splendour... on summer evenings it would become Istanbul, Baghdad, Hollywood... you would glimpse ladies' bare backs that looked like gold ... now and again a fragrant breeze would carry syncopated tunes, so languid they could make you faint".
