    Abstract:
    The late medieval wall of Rimini is an important monumental presence in the present-day fabric of the city, bounding its historic center. However, even though a good knowledge exists through written sources about it, the subject has not been checked enough from the archaeological point of view. This article intends to take stock of the situation about the current state of the knowledge and to identify some guidelines for eventual, desirable future studies. The wall, dated in its first construction at the middle of the thirteenth century, seems today to have been realized a century later, even though there is evidence of repairs and adjustments till 1700 and even later. It seems necessary a filing of the preserved parts and their topographic transposition by GIS, which must be intended specifically as an instrument both for study and for conservation purposes. Successively, by using the brick-dating system, the wall stratigraphy and the exam of the constructive techniques, it would seem possible to predict a dating of the preserved parts.
