Roman Catholic Diocese of Grosseto

The Roman catholic diocese of Grosseto is a Roman Catholic ecclesiastical territory in Italy, a suffragan of the archdiocese of Siena-Colle di Val d'Elsa-Montalcino, in Tuscany.[1] Its current bishop is Franco Agostinelli.[2]

The Cathedral of Grosseto.

Rusellæ was an episcopal city from the fifth century. St. Gregory the Great commended to the spiritual care of Balbinus, Bishop of Rusellæ, the inhabitants of Vetulonia.[3]

In 1138 pope Innocent II transferred the see to Grosseto and Rolando, the last Bishop of Roselle, became the first Bishop of Grosseto.

From 1858 to 1867, for political and economical reasons, the see remained vacant.
