Fano is situaded on the Adriatic sea in the central Italy region of Marches and its city has always represented a strategic location, right at the end of one of Rome's best-known consular roads, via Flaminia (the Flaminian Way) and nowdays at the crossroads of major highways, such as the "Adriatica" state road SS nr. 16 linking Milan and Bari and by the A14 "Autostrada del Sole" motorway connecting Bologna to Taranto, the via Flaminia which crosses Fano and links the city to Rome and the Fano-Grosseto superstrada that is named "Due Mari" for it connects the Adriatic coast to the Tyrrhenian sea.
Once it was called Fanum, as noted in De Bello Civili, when Julius Caesar (49 BC) crossed the Rubicon with his legions and occupied Pesaro, Ancona and Fano.
This was the first time the city is cited in ancient texts, although no indication whatsoever was given of its origins, which are still obscure even today.
The fact remains that in the territory of Fano, numerous findings from the prehistoric and early historic eras (from the Palaeolithic to the Iron Age) have been unearthed to testify the presence of pre-Roman settlements in the plains and in the hills along the Metauro valley.
It is certain that the oldest name of the city Fanum Fortunae, referred to the Temple of Fortune to commemorate the famous Battle of Metauro in 207 BC, when the Roman legions routed the Carthaginian army led by Hasdrubal.
It seems that the town was then built around the Temple dedicated to the goddess of Fortune and thus had named it Fanum.
There are still important and clear visible signs of Fano's history, starting from the period in which it was a Roman colony.
Remains from the Roman era include the Arch of Augustus, the walls, statues and mosaics.
The remains of the medieval town can be seen in the high city walls with its merloned gates.
Later buildings include Palazzo della Ragione, dating bacj to the thirteenth century), the Malatesta Tombs, the twelfth century Cathedral with famous frescoes made by Domenichino, noble buildings and lovely churches.
You can admire important art works made by Perugino in the Church of Santa Maria Nuova, as well as a predella attributed to Raphael.
San Pietro in Valle is one of the most beautiful Baroque churches in the Marches.
The city museum is located in the Corte Malatestiana, as is the picture gallery, which boasts of numerous works by Guercino (the famous "Guardian Angel"), Domenichino, Guido Reni, Mattia Preti and Michele Giambono.
