Explore our Sister City – Fanano, Italy!

Did you know we have a Sister City in Fanano, Italy? Fanano lays claim to Felix Pedro, the explorer who discovered gold in Fairbanks. Felice Pedroni (Felix Pedro’s real name) was born in Trignano, Italy, a small village very close to Fanano. Mayor Eberhart recently visited both Fanano and Trignano, and a Fanano Sister City Workgroup has formed to bolster our relationship and exchanges.

“Investigators have spent well over 3,000 hours working on this case,” Mayor Eberhart stated. “Chief Aragon and I have worked to ensure that the resources needed are available to investigators, and we will continue to support their work in solving this heinous crime. The perpetrators must be brought to justice and there must be closure for Mr. Kavairlook, the families, and our community.”
