The Medieval Village

Lying from south-east to north-west along the ridge of a hill, Mombaroccio (20 km from Pesaro) is entirely surrounded by strong walls protecting the ancient castle.

It was founded in the thirteenth century and belonged to the city of Pesaro until 1543.

The majestic and picturesque Porta Maggiore represents the emblem of the village, encased between two cylindrical towers.

The succession of families

Originally, the village  was governed by the Malatesta family, under whom the urban layout was defined.

They were followed by the Sforza family, who implemented new offensive and defensive strategies through new fortification interventions.

Later, the Della Rovere family decided to liberate this community from the painful provincial dependency and submitted it to Mr. Ranieri, Marquis Del Monte.

A vanguard society

Mombaroccio was a model of a vanguard society, especially under the leadership of the Marquises del Monte called by the Sforza family, in particular with Guidubaldo (son of Count Ranieri), collaborator of Galileo Galilei and fellow student of Torquato Tasso.

In the palace that belonged to Guidubaldo  there is a laboratory that shows some experiments performed together with Galileo.

Famous places

Close to Mombaroccio stands the thirteenth century Franciscan monastery  of  "Beato Sante".
Inside is preserved the Museum dedicated to Giansante Brancorsini, scion of a noble family that, after a blood event, came to the monastery  to become a Franciscan.
In the course of time the convent suffered the Napoleonic and the Savoy suppression, only later the friars were able to return to make it an important center of religious and social activity.

During the Second World War about three hundred people and many Jews escaped the deportations of the Nazis by taking refuge in the monastery.
From inside the cloister you can access the Picture Gallery-Museum, where authentic masterpieces of different cultures and origins are exhibited.

Engagement in the territory

The most populated area of Mombaroccio, Villagrande, sees the presence of a large industrial zone.
MCS MOBILI is located in this area with three covered factories which, together with the external surface, reach a total of 90.000 sqm.

The Company has been operating on the territory for 27 years and is a cornerstone of this wonderful town. Several initiatives have been proposed over the years to enhance the village, creating a synergy between private and public sectors, keeping high the name of Mombaroccio in the Marche region and in Italy.
Today MCS MOBILI wants to get even closer to the village of Mombaroccio by promoting its own projects, launching branding campaigns and trying to make the citizens of Pesaro aware of the beauty of this territory.
All this will be possible thanks to a young and careful local administration, more and more sensitive to industries and citizens.
