Fano holds a busy diary of local events including concerts, sports competitions and cultural exhibitions.

"Semel in anno licet insanire." is a ancient Roman saying meaning "madness is permissible once a year." which is relevant to Fano because it is home to one of the most famous carnivals in Italy.

With over a month of festivities and events, the locals of Fano and nearby towns crowd the streets of Fano to celebrate the annual Carnival which gives an infectious experience of party atmosphere.
