Fano Carnival

The carnival that showers you with masses of sweets, caramels and chocolates.. what's not to like?
This centuries old carnival dates back to the medieval times and attracts thousands of participants and spectators each year. Expect sweets, chocolate and caramels to be used as ammunition from the passing floats, which spectators often fire back at the entertainers.

The occasion is recognized as "Italy's oldest Carnival," as recorded in a manuscript from 1347. The festivities will commence with the official mascot, Vulón, leading the way into the future. Vulón's role is to guide us with a sense of levity and enjoyment as we tackle significant matters.
