The Italian Catholic Archdiocese of Spoleto-Norcia , historically the Diocese of Spoleto, and an archdiocese since 1821, is directly subject to the Holy See.
Spoleto, the Roman Spoletium, surrendered in the Gothic war to the Byzantine general, Constantine; but in 546 it was recovered by Totila, and it was not retaken by the Byzantines until 552, when Narses restored the fortifications. In 572 Spoleto became the seat of a Lombard duke, Faroald.
