Pesaro is situated on the Italian Adriatic. A colonia civium Romanorum from 184 b.C., it was a town of the Byzantine pentapolis following the fall of the Western empire. During the Middle Ages it was a free commune under Papal high sovereignty. Later, as a mediate subjecta, it was ruled by the seigneurs Malatesta, the Sforza and the Della Rovere, dukes of Urbino. Directly ruled by the Holy See since 1631, it was the main town of the apostolic legation of Urbino and Pesaro, thus a province of the Papal States. In 1860 it was occupied by the Piedmontese troops and annexed to the kingdom of Italy.
