HistoryEdit

Urbino is the ancient Urbinum Mataurense, a Roman municipium. Urbino was held by the Ostrogoths from the late 5th century, but was captured by Belisarius (538). Under Pepin the Short it became part of the pontifical domain. Circa 590 it was established as Diocese of Urbino, on reassigned territory from the suppressed Diocese of Sant'Angelo in Vado.
