Toro-Campobasso-Molise
Toro is a comune (municipality) in the Province of Campobasso in the Italian region Molise, located about 8 km east of Campobasso. As of 31 December 2004, it had a population of 1,507 and an area of 24.0 km

Toro borders the following municipalities: Campodipietra, Jelsi, Monacilioni, Pietracatella, San Giovanni in Galdo.

The little town rises along the tratturo (shepherds' track) going from Abruzzo to Apulia, and its economy was therefore heavily dependent on the pastoral economy. With the crisis of the age-old sistem of seasonal migration of shepherds and flocks after the unity of Italy in 1860, also Toro suffered heavily and gave a heavy contribution to emigration, with over two-thirds of its population. Among the many descendants of emigrants, also the Brazilian musician Toquinho, whose grandfather emigrated to Sao Paulo.

History
The name first appears in historical records in 1092 when the lord of Limosano, Roberto di Tristano, donated it to the benedictine Abbey of Santa Sofia, and consequently Toro remained a church fiefdom dependent from the diocesis of Benevento until 1785.
