- For the ancient history, see Lanuvium
In ancient times Lanuvium was an important town in the nearby of Rome. The emperors Antoninus Pius, Marcantonio Colonna and Commodus were born here. It decayed after the reign of Theodosius I (late 4th century AD), and was mostly abandoned due to the shutting down of its Pagan sanctuaries.
On February 17 1944, during World War II, it was bombed by sea and air by the Allies, and almost entirely destroyed.
