The Republic of San Marino, with an area of only 61 kmq, is situated between the Italian regions of Romagna and Marche, only a few kilometers from the Adriatic sea costa. According to the legend, San Marino was founded in 301 A.D. by Dalmatian stonemason Marino. He came here to hide from the Roman emperor Dioklecian in the period of Christian persecution. Since that time this small state has been proud of its liberty and in the past being able to constantly defend its independence. Its territory is partly dominated by limesteone hills and Mount Titan (738m) on which stands the capital San Marino, a picturesque town protected by walls and castles that dominate from from above the surrounding regions. Millions of visitors flock there every year in San Marino to visit the narrow streets and its famous towers at the top where you can catch a magnificent view from this natural balcony on Italy. The Republic of San Marino is not only one of the smallest but also the world`s oldest republic in the world.
During the meeting of the Bands we offer two options of performances. An evening concert in the pedestrian area of Riccione and a parade through the historic center of the Republic of San Marino with Grande Finale together with all participating groups in Piazza Libertà.
Through these two concerts in two completely different places you can experience the beauty of the Adriatic coast and the hinterland of San Marino. You also have the opportunity to meet other international people and lovers of band music.
