History[edit]

Agricultural settlements of the Capenati and Falisci in the area are attested from the 5th/4th centuries BC. In the 6th century AD a popular pilgrimage church, entitled to St. Abondius and Abondantius, was created here; the saints' relics were moved to Rome, on the Tiber Island, in 999. In 1159 Pope Adrian IV died at Rignano.

Rignano was first a possession of Santa Maria in Trastevere, and then of the Savelli family, whom were shortly ousted by Pope Alexander VI. After the fall of the Borgia, the Savelli regained it, and hold the fief until 1607, when they sold it to the Borghese, later followed by the Muti, the Cesi and the Massimo families.
