History

The origin of the toponym comes from its feudal lord Pandolfo from Marezzano. In the Middle Ages the place was part of the Lauro fiefdom, and a possession of the Orsini family and later of the Sanseverino, Pignatelli and, from 1638, of the Lancellotti that ruled it until 1806, when the feudal system was abolished.
