Lamberto da Fiagnano

As his name says, Lamberto was born in Fiagnano, in the area of Valsellustra, in the second half of the XI century.

After his first literary studies in Imola, he went to Pisa to complete his clerical doctrine and because of his fine abilities he was soon at the service of the Pope’s court. He was nominated Bishop of Ostia, during the delicate fases of the nominations and the Worms Concordat in 1122.

During his reign (1124 – 1130) he showed to have great strength in defending the rights of the church .Evidence of his attachment to the diocese of Imola is the assignment of a large and rich territory to the church of Imola by means of his famous sealed document, the Bolla.
