History

The element which has characterized the history of Bagno di Romagna Terme is, without doubt, the hot water spring. In the prehistoric period (as discoveries of lithic arrows and same other material testify) the first inhabitants of this area were not indifferent to the charm of this unique phenomenon of nature which certainly favoured settlements. With the fall of the Roman Empire, Bagno was annexed to the Exarchate of Ravenna and in 754 it passed under the jurisdiction of the Church together with the territories of Pentapoli.
The first information on Pieve di Bagno dates back to 871 when a bull by Pope AdrianII granted John, Bishop of Arezzo, the lands of "Massa Balnei". After the dominion of the Count Guidi family, from the end of XI century up to 1404, and the short parenthesis under the Gambacorti family, Lords of these lands up to 1453, Val di Bagno passed under the control of the Florentines who founded the "Capitanato" (Captaincy) and reorganized the administrative system introducing a series of acts known as "Statutes".
