By the middle of the fifteenth century Rimini had become a major center of Italian humanism. The cultural patronage of the famouscondottiereSigismondo Pandolfo Malatesta (1417–1468), attracted numerous artists, writers, and scholars, who came to the city and created works for which Rimini is still widely known today. In spite of recently intensified research on this topic, various questions about the philosophical, literary and artistic output of this circle remain open. In particular, the historiography of Rimini itself leaves considerable room for new exploration, and this despite recent work on the architecture and pictural arts of the quattrocento city.

From the restorative wines of Marko Kraljevic to the apple wedges festering in Gregor Samsa's back and the grand feasts peppering the novels of Gogol and Dostoevsky, images of food and drink in the Russian and Eastern European literary imagination are tantalizingly abundant. Collectively, they appear in novels, films, folktales and works of art as consumed objects and metonymic representations of the landscapes and human practices that cultivate and prepare them. However, these images also form a constellation of symbols and metaphors through which we can trace the particularities of identity and social belonging, historical experience, and the engagement of the individual with the local and global environment.
