Province of Frosinone, Lazio
The Province of Frosinone was established by Royal Decree on 6 December 1926 with territories belonging to Lazio and Campania.
At the same time the Province of Latina (originary called Littoria) was also established. The Campania areas were the left valley of the Liri-Garigliano river, the district of Sora, the Comino valley, the district of Cassino, the Gulf of Formia and Gaeta, the Pontine isles, which until then had been for centuries included in the Province called Terra di Lavoro, of the Kingdom of Naples (or of the Two Sicilies).
