FAC is the acronym for “Ferrovia Appennino Centrale” (Central Apennine Railway), a narrow-gauge railway line that connected Arezzo to Fossato di Vico, active from 15 August 1886 (maiden voyage) to 1944. The primary objective was to connect the two most important railway lines in central Italy: Florence/Rome and Rome/Ancona.
