The land where today emerges Esanatoglia have been occupied for many centuries, with at least 2,000 years of documented history and archaeological remains.

Centuries have given Esanatoglia a rich history with names and events closely linked to the most dramatic chapters in the history of Italy.
Below is a tentative reading of the major transformation periods and its impact in the surrounding communities.
