Fano Events, Italy

The Fano Carnival

While not famous like the one in Venice, Viareggio or Cento, the Fano carnival still has its supremacy: it is the oldest carnival in Italy, with its first documented evidence dating back to 1347.
If you want to immerse yourself in the history of the carnival you can find valuable material at the Biblioteca Federiciana di Fano, the library that collects all the original initiatives that accompany the event, such as the awards ceremony for the decorated windows (1937), amateur night (1940) and direct transmission of the carnival by a Croatian radio station in 1971.
Three weeks of Carnival are usually needed to awaken Fano from its winter sleep. The waterfront is the stage for floats and costumes, while in the rest of the city great attention is given to local traditional products.
