Pennabilli (Romagnol: La Pénna) is a comune (municipality) in the Province of Rimini in the Italian region Emilia-Romagna, located about 140 kilometres (87 mi) southeast of Bologna and about 45 kilometres (28 mi) south of Rimini.

History[edit]

Until 15 August 2009, the comune belonged to the Marche (Province of Pesaro-Urbino) from which it was detached, together with six other municipalities of the Alta Valmarecchia area, following the implementation of the outcome of a referendum held on 17 and 18 December 2006.[2][3][4]
