Sassoferrato is a town and comune of the province of Ancona in the Marche region of central-eastern Italy.

History[edit]

To the south of the town lie the ruins of the ancient Sentinum, on the Via Flaminia. The castle above the town is mentioned from the 11th century; the town belonged to the House of Este from 1208, later to the Atti family, becoming a free municipality in 1460 after the assassination of Luigi degli Atti.

Sassoferrato borders with the municipalities of Arcevia, Fabriano, Genga, Serra Sant'Abbondio (PU), Pergola (PU), Costacciaro (PG, Umbria) and Scheggia e Pascelupo (PG, Umbria).
