  • Of the old church, begun in the mid-13th century and consecrated in 1336, survive only a few parts. In the 19th century the building underwent renovations and expansions that in addition to completely change the original Interior, compromised stability. In 1930 an earthquake affect the solidity of the structure, necessitating the demolition of the coverage and superelevation. Initially within the choir were housed the tombs of some members of the Malatesta family, transferred then in 1659 in the loggia. On the left is the tomb of Paola Bianca Malatesta, a fine example of late Gothic sculpture created by Venetian master Filippo di Domenico, with a rich array of sculptures (statues, arches, columns, shelves) to decorate the image of the deceased. On the other side there is the grave of Pandolfo III Malatesta, Renaissance, built by his son and realized on likely designed by Leon Battista Alberti. Next door is the far more modest tomb of the family doctor. The place is closed, with no signs and no one who knows how to give directions, but while I was looking outside the fence, a group visited the ruins accompanied by a guide, then a way to get there is (mine was an impromptu visit, maybe organizing themselves in a little early ...). Is just one of many Italian cases: how much should be enhanced (and exploited) is not. In any case, with its walls, the Corinthian columns and the floor now grassy, all under an open sky, is certainly the most fascinating place I visited in Fano.

  • The old church and former monastery of San Francesco have survived only in part, when you walk down the street of San Domenico, the fence can be seen grandeur, white walls and overgrown greenery yard. However, the portico with the tombs of family members here who ruled the Malatesta in XIV-XV centuries, well preserved.

  • Hidden cam in ruins, with a beautiful Colonnade. I see from the gate closed because nobody douta was able to give explanations: it's not the first time Sydney don't get information. They don't want to exploit certain works? Too bad.
