Sovana is a small town in southern Tuscany, in the province of Grosseto. Etruscan by origin, Sovana became a Roman municipium. Conquered by Lombards in 592-605, it was chosen as their administrative centre in the area. Later, when Roselle was abandoned due to Saracen ravages, it became the centre of the county under the Aldobrandeschi family. In the Middle Ages it was known as Soana. Its importance declined when the county was acquired by the Orsini, who moved the capital to Pitigliano. In the mid-16th century Sovana was annexed to the Grand Duchy of Tuscany by Cosimo I de’ Medici.
