Capalbio

Capalbio is a comune (municipality) in the Province of Grosseto in the Italian region Tuscany, located about 150km south of Florence and about 45km southeast of Grosseto.Capalbio borders the following municipalities: Manciano, Montalto di Castro, Orbetello.HistoryThe name derives probably from the Latin Caput Album or Campus Albus (White Cape or Field, respectively), due to the white alabaster stone dug in the area.Capalbio is known for the first time in 805 AD, when it was donated to the Abbey of the Tre Fontane, near Rome, by Charlemagne. The possession was confirmed in 1161 by Pope Alexander III. Later it was under the Aldobrandeschi family, who were followed by Orvieto, the Republic of Siena and the Orsini, who built the Castle.Conquered by the Spaniards in 1555. it was assigned to Cosimo I de' Medici as part of his new Grand Duchy of Tuscany. The city subsequently decayed and the area depopulated due to the presence of malaria.
