Its origins date back to the Umbrians, between the sixth and fourth centuries BC, and there is evidence that in the third century BC Sarsina govern a great state which included some Romagna valleys and the high Tiber. The economy was silvopastoral (wool, hides, cheese, timber).
It was conquered by the Romans in 266 BC and became federated City before, and City Hall, then.
In 250 BC was the birthplace of one of the largest Latin playwrights: Plautus, Sarsina who dedicates every year a great fame festival, held in the summer at the Arena Palutina.
