Macerata Feltria is a comune (municipality) in the Province of Pesaro e Urbino in the Italian region Marche, located about 90 kilometres (56 mi) west of Ancona and about 40 kilometres (25 mi) southwest of Pesaro.
During the age of the Roman Empire, Macerata Feltria name was Pitinum Pisaurense; it was a small town built in the place of an old Celtic village (in that area the Senones Celts were settled). Its economy was based on the export of wood.
During the 6th century a.D., Pitinum Pisaurense was completely destroyed by the Ostrogoths during the Gothic War (535-554). After the year 1000 a.D. the village was rebuilt using the ruins of the old Pitinum Pisaurense; in facts, the name Macerata means "built with the ruins".
In the village there is an archeological museum, exposing the evidences of the village history.
