Lisippo Walk

The Lisippo walk extends for almost a kilometer above the breakwater that encircles the tourist port of Fano and is one of the longest and most panoramic of the Adriatic sea. It is accessible to pedestrians and bicycles and has two separate entrances that can also be traveled by handicapped persons and wheelchairs. At the end of the path, on the east pier and in front of an enchanting view, stands the beautiful statue of Lysippo that gave the name to the walk. It is a copy of the bronze statue of an athlete who incinerated, attributed to Lisippo (late IV – beginning III BC), found by chance from a Flandese fishing boat in 1964. The bronze, whose ignore is the original location, it had to be part of the precious cargo of a ship sunk in the Adriatic, probably coming from Greece or perhaps from Byzantium. The copy is the work of the artist Paolo Furlani and was donated by the Lions Club to the city of Fano and to the Marina dei Cesari Marina.
