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.
