Mogliano rises on a hill at 313 m. on the sea level and halfway between the Sibillini mountains and the Adriatic coast, an ancient village in the charming and relaxing hilly landscapes known for the craftsmanship of wicker used for the production of: baskets and furniture.


The current territory of Mogliano was inhabited in 7th and 6th centuries BC by the Piceni, as testified by the discovery of a sandstone stele with an inscription kept in the National Museum in Ancona. These people lived in villages scattered along the line of local hills; their civilization was later absorbed by the Romans, when they submitted the Piceno in the first decades of the 3rd century BC.

Since the end of the 12th century to the mid-14th century, the castle was dominated by the da Mogliano family; in 1345 Gentile da Mogliano became lord of Fermo and ruled the city until 1355, when he was defeated by Cardinal Albornoz. The latter included Mogliano in the district of Fermo within the Papal States, of which it was one of the most important castles; in 1569 Mogliano became autonomous under Pope Pius V, but in 1578 it was returned under the district of Fermo.

After Italy was conquered by the French during the French Revolutionary Wars, Mogliano was included in the Department of Tronto; in 1815, with the restoration of the Papal rule, it was returned under the Delegation of Fermo, and finally, in 1828, it joined the Delegation of Macerata.

After the annexation of the Marche to the Kingdom of Italy and the division of the Marche into four provinces, Mogliano was included in the province of Macerata.
