Fabriano

Trip Planner Europe  /  Italy  /  Marche  /  Province of Ancona  /  Fabriano
Fabriano is a town and comune of Ancona province in the Italian region of the Marche, at 325m above sea level. It lies in the Esino valley 44km upstream and southwest of Jesi; and 15km east-northeast of Fossato di Vico and 36km east of Gubbio (both in Umbria). Its location on the main highway and rail line from Umbria to the Adriatic make it a mid-sized regional center in the Apennines. Fabriano is the headquarters of the giant appliance maker Indesit.Fabriano, with Bologna, is the only Italian creative city (UNESCO). The town is in the category Folk Arts (for the Fabriano's handmade paper production).HistoryFabriano appears to have been founded in the early Middle Ages by the inhabitants of a small Roman town 5km south at Attiggio, of which some slight remains and inscriptions are extant. Fabriano itself was one of the earliest places in Europe to make high-quality paper on an industrial scale, starting in the 13th century, and the town even today has a reputation for fine watermarked paper. This led to Fabriano's prosperity in the Late Middle Ages and the Renaissance, and was also one of the factors that led to the establishment of nearby Foligno in Umbria as one of the earliest printing centers in Italy in the 15th century, from 1470 onwards.
