  Capaccio  
 

The origin of modern Capaccio is linked to the gradual move of the inhabitants from Old Capaccio, when Frederic the Second of Swevia conquered it. Pope Innocent the IV fearing that the great emperor wanted to make Rome capital of the empire excommunicated Frederic and incited the nobles to rebellion and conjured against him. Absolved from their oath of allegiance the Feudatories of Capaccio conspired  against the Emperor who besieged the old city and conquered it in 1246.

Frederic executed the main conspiror. After his death(1250) and after the Swevian 's defeat (1266), Capaccio had an active life under the Angioini and Aragonesi reigns. After the Angioini reign the Leige Lords' sequence started. In 1296 the first Lord of the Manor was Raimondo de Bauci, and in 1362 Queen Giovanna made Ruggiero Sansaverino the feudal lord of the County. The County was governed by different families, after the Sanseverinos' there were the Cadornas', the Filomarinos', the Grimaldis' and the last one Dorias', which kept the County until the end of the feudal age.

The new Capaccio comprised 200 families,  there were 2 convents and the aristocratic families were the Angelis', Cannicchis', Eliseis', Vignatis', Zappulis'. At the beginning of the 20th century Capaccio comprised about 500 onhabitants and today it has about 20.000 inhabitants.
