3rd International Summer Chess Festival, Mare di Fano

Mare di Fano 1A wonderful tournament on the Italian Adriatic coast will take place from 28th July to 3rd August.

The Summer Chess Festival ‘Mare di Fano’ will run for a third time, bringing together amateur and professional players.

In the middle of the summer, chess aficionados will have an opportunity to enjoy sea, delicious Italian food and serious chess in the company of at least 10 invited GMs and IMs, hence a possibility to achieve norms.

The Open section is composed of five parts: Major A group (> 1900), B group (<2000), C group (< 1600), U-16 and a Rapid tournament. Alongside, the Italian U-20 Championship and the Women Championship will also take place.

Currently 148 players are signed to take participation. Full lists below.

Whether hunting for norms or simply enjoying a summer holiday + a chess tournament, the Fano Chess Festival is bound to provide an unforgettable chess adventure.

Reasonably priced recommended hotels situated along the beach, respectable prizes, side events, an antique picturesque town dating back to the Roman times and a friendly chess atmosphere make this tournament highly recommended.

A welcome package containing three gifts is awaiting each participant – with a selection of local produce, the tournament’s program and a colourful armband. Two thematic guided visits with an expert local guide to the Roman historic sites of the town are offered free of charge.

The tournament falls during a festive summer season with a rich cultural program including exhibitions, the Fano Jazz by the Sea Festival and the Fanno Summer Carnival.

The organiser, Dario Pedini, has had under his direction several highly successful international Open tournaments as well as many Italian National championships, most notably the Italian Rapid Championships, which he has organised for the last three years to a high acclaim.

Diana Mihajlova, a chess journalist, will take care of the public and media relations.

This year it clashes closely with the duration of the 2014 Chess Olympiad, so it would be a good alternative for the ones not heading to Tromsø!
