The ancient village of Consilinum was built during the Roman Ages.
Sala Consilina is located in the middle area of Vallo di Diano, close to the borders of Campania with Basilicata. The bordering municipalities are Atena Lucana, Brienza (PZ), Marsico Nuovo (PZ), Padula, Sassano and Teggiano.
Sala Consilina was arguably the birthplace of Giovanni Martini, a trumpeter that served in Italy with Giuseppe Garibaldi and later joined the United States Army, serving with George Armstrong Custer and participating in the Battle of Little Big Horn. Martini is now buried at the Cypress Hill Cemetery in Brooklyn.
