The village has medieval origins (11th century) and was under several dominations (the Borghese, the Orsini and the Alviano) until the 15th century when it was included in the Papal State until the unity of Italy (1860).
Its economy is partly agricultural, but most of the population works in the nearby chemical, iron and steel industries of Narni and Terni. Recently there has been also a remarkable tourist development.
