Sant’Angelo in Colle

There is no certain information about the birth of the country, although some sources report that already existed in 715: in that year, as a result of a quarrel between the Bishop of Arezzo and Siena Adeodato Puperziano, one of the witnesses reported that the Diocese of Arezzo extends in Sancto Angelo Abollensis, a name which can be seen a reference to the old name of the country.  However, the first mention certain is 5 December 1208, a parchment of the Hospital of Santa Maria della Scala in Siena.
