History[edit]

Locally, the name is associated with Pan.

The first mention of Panni is in land registry documents of 1406. In 1494, the short-lived Alfonso II of Naples gave it to Parretto de Ponte and Giovanna de Orenga.[citation needed]

Half the population died in the plague of 1656.[citation needed]
