The breed is still used, widely, in the region of the Abruzzo where the flocks of sheep vitalize the rural economy and the wolves are protected predators (of the few areas of the planet, Lamentablemente…).
He also descended from Shepherd dogs that once existed in the region of the Tuscan Maremma and the region of Lazio. From 1860, the transhumance of herds from one region to another has favoured the development of a natural mixture of these two primitive races.
Several descriptions of dogs defending vulnerable white sheep are found in the literature of ancient Rome, in works such as the Columella, Varro and Palladius. Similar to the Maremma Sheepdog are represented in numerous sculptures and paintings from Roman times until today.
Until year 1958, the Maremmano Pastor and Pastor Abrucense were regarded as separate races. The first Canine society of the Maremma Sheepdog was established in the year in 1950, and three years later (1953) the first Canine society of the Pastor Maremmano.

For which reason, the 1 in January of 1958, the races were unified by the ENCI (Ente Nazionale della Cinophilia Italian, or national association Cynologique Italiana).
