The municipality of Castel Giorgio is also known as "European Capital of American Football" because within the territory of the town there is the "Vince Lombardi stadium", the first field in Italy designed for this sport.

History

In the area of Castel Giorgio remains from prehistoric settlements, belonging to Villanovan civilization, were found in 1993. Also present are an Etruscan necropolis (3rd-2nd centuries BC) and remains of Roman villas and roads (Via Traiana Nova and Via Cassia)

The town was founded in 1477, as castle and residence for the bishop of Orvieto, Giorgio della Rovere. After several vicissitudes, the palace was restored by Cardinal Giacomo Sannesio in 1610-1620, turning it into a summer resort for the prelates of Orvieto.
