Each year the city of Fano gets transformed to host the oldest Carnival in Italy (established in 1347): parades of giant floats in papier-machè, masquerades, music, hundreds of kilos of sweets launched from floats and a final stake in which The Great Pupo is burnt, make it unique and unforgettable. According to legend it has its roots in medieval times after the episode of reconciliation between the two most important families of Fano, the Del Casseros and the Da' Carignanos. Since then the Carnival has gradually characterized, so much so that in 1872 it was decided to create a committee to organize the event which even today, after centuries, involves more than one hundred of thousands of passionate Fano people and tourists. Fano Carnival also means... culture, exhibitions, theatre, art, food and drink, festivals, music and sports.
