Carpegna is a comune (municipality) in the Province of Pesaro e Urbino in the Italian region Marche, located about 100km west of Ancona and about 50km southwest of Pesaro.Carpegna borders the following municipalities: Belforte all'Isauro, Borgo Pace, Frontino, Mercatello sul Metauro, Montecopiolo, Pennabilli, Piandimeleto, Pietrarubbia, Sant'Angelo in Vado, Sestino.The Monte Carpegna nearby is a ski resort. The communal territory is included in the Sasso Simone and Simoncello Regional Park.HistoryAccording to legend, Odoacer gave Carpegna to his follower Armileone in 466. An assumed descendant of the latter, Ulderico di Carpegna received the fief of Carpegna and other properties in the Montefeltro and Romagna regions from Otto I, Holy Roman Emperor. The lords and counts (as such first mentioned in 1238) of Carpegna acquired more than 30 castles and towns in the region. They split into the Carpegna-Gattara and the Carpegna-Pietracuta branches, which in the struggles between papal and imperial followers (Guelphs and Ghibellines) took opposite sides. Two other side branches of the House of Carpegna played more important roles in Italian history: the House of Malatesta (lords of Rimini) and the House of Montefeltro (lords and dukes of Urbino).
