The commune has approximately 1300 families and 1500 habitations. The gentilic for the town is corropolesi. Corropoli takes it name from the word "Ripoli", an ancient neolithic settlement located nearby. These ruins were discovered by Concezio Rosa, a physician from Corropoli, in the year 1871 The patron saint of Corropoli is Saint Agnes. The commune has a density of approximately 170 individual per square kilometer. The zip code for the town is 64013 and the phone prefix is 0861.HistoryIn the third century BC. the area of Corropoli came under Roman influence. The Romans constructed a good number of villas and temples in the area. Archaeological investigations conducted in the 1970s and 80's yielded a large number of Roman artifacts including dozens of terracotta pieces, amphora's, bowls, remains of villas. Atop these items were the remains of several more recent monasteries.Between the years 1393 and 1760 Corropoli was one of the 19 dukedoms under the ruling Acquaviva family. It was given to them by King Ferrante in gratitude for the Acquaviva's assistance in defeating the attacks of the rulers of nearby Atri. Under Acquaviva rule Corropoli was greatly fortified. The reinforced city walls constructed at this time were built as protection for the baronial castle of the Acquaviva's. The castle had a torture room, vast wine cellars and stall for approximately 40 horses.For many years there has been a strong religious presence in the town. Present are the Abbey of Santa Maria di Mejulano (also known as "la Badia"), the monastery of Gabbiano, and, from a later period, the parish churches of Saint Agnes, the convent of Saint Mary of the Angels, the church of Saint Joseph and the church of Saint Donato.
