Rosignano Marittimo is a wonderful medieval town, set on the Thyrrenian coast. The origins of the town are very ancient and they are linked to the Roman family of the Rasinia, from which also its local toponym derived. Documented news dates to 762 A.D., the time of the Lombard dominion. From the X century on, the village was under the Marquisate of Tuscany, forst, and, later, it was incorporated in the territories of the republic of Pisa.
In the XV century, after a long period of progressive decadence of this sea-faring republic, the town of Rosignano entered the Florentine Republic together with the other Pisan dominions.
