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