Co-cathedral in Osimo

The Archdiocese of Ancona-Osimo (Latin: Archidioecesis Anconitanus-Auximanus) is a joint ecclesiastical territory and *metropolitan see of the Catholic Church in the Marche region of Italy.

It has existed in this form since 1986, when the historical Archdiocese of Ancona was united with the Diocese of Osimo.

The archbishop is seated in Ancona Cathedral, with Osimo Cathedral as a co-cathedral.
