San Lorenzo is located on the left bank of the river Cesano, at the edge of the rich archaeological area is returning the relics of the ancient Suasa Senonum, founded by the Gauls, subjugated by the Romans and finally destroyed by the Goths of Alaric in 409.
The origin of the country is linked to the founding of the famous monastery of the Benedictines, who built it between the seventh and ninth centuries, using also the abundant archaeological site. In 1141 San Lorenzo in Campo is emancipated from the abbey to pass under the jurisdiction of Fano; in 1231 it was the seat of the Apostolic Vicariate and equipped with rock; during the bitter struggles between Guelphs and Ghibellines, it suffered heavy devastation from Ancona and Senigallia, until towards the end of the fourteenth century there was established the rule of the Counts of Montevecchio which was a feud despite the temporary occupation of Francesco Sforza, of Sigismondo Malatesta and the annexation to the Duchy of Urbino.
