HistoryEdit

After the referendum of 17 and 18 December 2006, Casteldelci was detached from the Province of Pesaro and Urbino (Marche) to join Emilia-Romagna and the Province of Rimini on 15 August 2009.[3][4]

PersonalitiesEdit

It is the birthplace of the condottiero Uguccione della Faggiola, member of the family who ruled here in the Middle Ages. Later Casteldelci was a possession of the House of Montefeltro and the Medici.
