History

The name comes from Albinianum, a Roman town founded in honor of Marcus Aulius Albinus in the 2nd century AD. Originally a Samnite center called Compulteria became later a Roman municipium, an important trade center thanks to its strategic position and was furtherly enriched and embellished with monuments and public buildings by emperor Hadrian. Compulteria was destroyed by the Saracens between the 9th and 10th centuries, and a little distance away a new settlement, Alvignano, rose under the Normans.

During the second world war Alvignano was a German headquarters.
