Tempio Malatestiano: Façade1450
Via Quattro Novembre, Rimini
In 1450 Alberti was given an opportunity to put his classical ideas into visible form in an ambitious structure, the San Francesco in Rimini, called Tempio Malatestiano, that, although unfinished, is known today through a medal by Matteo de' Pasti.
