Colonna is a comune (municipality) in the Province of Rome in the Italian region Latium, located about 20km southeast of Rome, on the Alban Hills. With a population of some 3,900, it is the smallest of the Castelli Romani.HistoryAncient eraThe territory of Colonna is believed to have included the ancient community of Labici, located in the area of the modern comune of Monte Compatri. Labici was conquered in 414 BC by the Romans under the dictator Quintus Servilius Priscus and razed to the ground. The Labicani then founded Labicum Quintanas near the Tower of the Pasolina near Colonna. The place is noted as Ad Quintanas, a station on the Via Labicana, between Rome and Ad Bivium.Middle AgesLabicum Quintanas became an episcopal see in the 4th century. The inhabited area began to decay and disappeared with the Gothic War (535 - 554).Colonna is mentioned for the first time in 1047, in a deed of Henry III, Holy Roman Emperor, a guest at the castle, which had taken its name from a column of the ancient Labicum Quintanense, when he stopped there during his march that with his army to Naples along the Via Casilina.
