This is an ancient Umbrian town which was densely populated even in the epoch of Ancient Rome; its most ancient section dates back to the 4th century of the Vulgar Era. Its name derives from that of a Roman soldier who was martyrised here in the year 303 for his Christianity. Located between the two extreme points of the village of San Sepolcro and CittÓ di Castello, the ancient Melisciano - San Giustino, "Castrum" in the Roman epoch, was in a strategic position which was desirable although also dangerous for its autonomy.
The ancient history of the town, when it was a feud of, first, the Dotti family and then of the Bufalini family is testified to by the Bufalini Castle, erected in 1492. The building, subsequently transformed into a magnificent villa by Vasari, inside preserves grotesque decorations attributed to Cristoforo Gherardi and outside has a garden with a maze. It is possible to admire paintings of great charm such as the "Madonna col Bambino e Santi" (Madonna with Child and Saints) by Signorelli, a "Madonna" by Andrea del Sarto and other works by Guido Reni. San Giustino today has a modern appearance and the principle activities here are agriculture, the iron-founding industry and alimentary production.
