The current territory of Mogliano was inhabited in 7th and 6th centuries BC by the Piceni, as testified by the discovery of a sandstone stele with an inscription kept in the National Museum in Ancona.

Since the end of the 12th century to the mid-14th century, the castle was dominated by the da Mogliano family; in 1345 Gentile da Mogliano became lord of Fermo and ruled the city until 1355, when he was defeated by Cardinal Albornoz. The latter included Mogliano in the district of Fermo within the Papal States, of which it was one of the most important castles; in 1569 Mogliano became autonomous under Pope Pius V, but in 1578 it was returned under the district of Fermo.
