Mondolfo

4.1
Mondolfo is a comune (municipality) in the Province of Pesaro e Urbino in the Italian region Marche, located about 35km northwest of Ancona and about 25km southeast of Pesaro, on the Adriatic Sea. As of 31 December 2004, it had a population of 11,478 and an area of 22.7km2.GeographyThe municipality of Mondolfo contains the frazioni (subdivisions, mainly villages and hamlets) Marotta, Ponterio, and Centocroci.Mondolfo borders the following municipalities: Castel Colonna, Fano, Monterado, San Costanzo, Senigallia.Mondolfo is located at an elevation of between 0 and 157m above sea level. There are 322 companies and 3,533 employees.HistoryThe welcome Mondolfo offered the Duke of Urbino, Francesco Maria I Della Rovere, prompted him to confer the title of “Terra Fedelissima” or loyal land to the town; it is recalled every year in July, with the historical remembrance of Contrade in Festa. The events, that happened in 1523, evoke some of the most heroic and glorious pages of the borough of Mondolfo when, in spite of the bad fortune of the Della Rovere family, it remained loyal to Francesco Maria I and fought as his ally, until it surrendered to a siege, “coming to terms” only after having seriously wounded the one who Duke Della Rovere deposed. In 1517, Pope Leo X, a member of the Medici family, declared that Francesco Maria’s rule was no longer in force of the dukedom of Urbino because of his betrayal, and assigned it to his nephew Lorenzo De Medici, or Lorenzino as he was called, to differentiate him from his grandfather, who was known as “the Magnificent”. The Castle and Fortress of Mondolfo didn’t open the doors to the new lord: too strong was the loyalty and the link with Francesco Maria who, when he was a child, stayed there for a long time owing to the mildness of its climate.
