Pesaro is a town and comune in the Italian region of the Marche, capital of the Pesaro e Urbino province, on the Adriatic. According to the 2011 census, its population was 95,011, making it the second most populous city in the Marche, after Ancona. Pesaro is known as "City of Bicycle", thanks to its big net of bicycle paths. The city received this award by Legambiente, the most important ecologist society in Italy, in 2015, because it is the city with the biggest bicycle use in Italy. It is also known as "City of Music" thanks to the bond with Gioacchino Rossini, the famous composer born in Pesaro. For this reason, in 2015, the Italian Government officially candidate Pesaro as "Creative City" in the group of World Heritage Sites of UNESCO.Fishery, furniture industry and tourism are the main strengths of the local economy.HistoryThe city was founded as Pisaurum by the Romans in 184 BC as colony in the territory of the Picentes, the people who lived on the northeast coast during the Iron Age. However, in 1737, 13 ancient votive stones were unearthed in a local farm field, each bearing the inscription of a Roman god; these were written in a pre-Estrucan script, indicating a much earlier occupation of the area than the 184 BC Picentes colony.
