Forlimpopoli is the birthplace of the famous writer and gastronome Pellegrino Artusi. He wrote the book "The Science in the Kitchen and the Art of Eating Well". Much is known about him, but I will tell you the highlights, shadows and secrets of his character, his destiny tied to the famous thief Passator Cortese, his sister Gertrude story and why she died alone in a mental hospital. Forlimpopoli was founded by the Romans in the second century BC, frequented by pilgrims to Rome in medieval times, with several notable buildings, such as the Rocca Albornoz, built in the middle of the fourteenth century on the ruins of an old cathedral. This Fortress conceals the history of the town hosting the Museo Archeologico "T. Aldini" with Palaeolithic artifacts , Roman mosaics and amphorae, medieval and Late medieval found in the surrounding area. At last "Casa Artusi" a museum created by restoring the monumental complex of the Church of the Servi, in honour of Pellegrino Artusi.
