The Carnival of Fano at FICO

If it's not Carnival without floats, then FICO could only choose the Pupi of the "sweetest Carnival in Italy" for its Italian celebration. Come see Fano's traditional giant papier-mâché puppets depicting Frida, traditional masks and famous people who will fill the park.

The FICNIC is back, this time in a Carnival version. This year the indoor picnic invites you to participate in your best costume. The rest will work as usual: reserve your tablecloth, prepare your basket choosing from 30 Italian picnic menus, sit on the cushions and enjoy food, music, and company.
