History[edit]

Domagnano, previously known as Montelupo (mountain of wolves) after its coat of arms, was already colonized by Roman times and was first mentioned in c. 1300. It is located on Monte Titano and you can see the Adriatic Sea from here. The so-called Domagnano Treasure was found in the castle here in the late nineteenth century. It is now split between a number of museums, but the largest portions of the treasure are kept at the Germanisches Nationalmuseum in Nuremberg and the British Museum. [1]
