Corte Malatestiana Fano

We’ve just returned from a week in Fano, Italy, where we were visiting my in-laws. We spent plenty of time at the seaside taking in the fresh sea air, but one of my favorite morning walks was around the city centre. At one point, we were in the main square, Piazza XX Settembre, and Little T dashed off in the direction of the Malatesta Palace (Palazzo di Malatesta). The palace was the family residence of the Malatesta family that was in power from the end of the 12th century to about the mid-1400s, and today it houses the Civic Museum and Art Gallery. We spent some time wandering around the courtyard, having a look at numerous ancient artifacts and Little T was especially in awe of the massive pot, bell and anchors.
