The feudal village was acquired in 1625 by Gregorio Bruno who, after some years, gave the village the name of St. Anna.
After the abrogation of feudal duties in 1812 the village became a selfgoverning municipality.
The oldest building of the small town is the Baronial rural farm, that since the ancient periods has been the owner's residence and later it became a firm and a structure of control for the territory.
Adjacent to it there is the Cathedral Church consecrated to St. Anna and since 1809 it has been opened to faith.
