Sant'Angelo in Vado is a comune (municipality), site of Ancient Tifernum Metaurense and former bishopric in the Province of Pesaro e Urbino in the central Italian Adriatic region Marche.


It is located about 90 kilometres (56 mi) west of Ancona and about 50 kilometres (31 mi) southwest of Pesaro. Its territory is crossed by the Metauro river.

The municipality borders with Apecchio, Belforte all'Isauro, Carpegna, Mercatello sul Metauro, Peglio, Piandimeleto, Urbania and Urbino. It borders also on Monte Ruperto, a frazione and small enclave of Umbria in the Marche belonging to the municipality of Città di Castello, Province of Perugia.

There were two periods when there was a Roman Catholic Diocese of Sant’Angelo in Vado, although the Diocese has been suppressed since 1986.

  • Federico Zuccari (1540–1609), painter and architect
  • Taddeo Zuccari (1529–66), painter
