Minimal Fano threefolds are known to be (mirror) modular i.e. their regularized I-series can be expressed as a weight 2 newform expanded in terms of a Hauptmodul of the same level. It turns out similar phenomena holds also for some non-minimal Fano threefolds - we'll review these results and discuss approaches to predict (mirror) modular Fano varieties.
