The ancient name of the place in the early Middle ages
was "Ripa gotorum". A legend says it was founded
by the Goths, who invaded the Roman Empire in the
5th century AD. In 1181 the name appeared in records
as "Ripabrunaldo", and under the Norman occupation
it was a fiefdom of Giuliano from Castropignano. In
the 17th century it was a fiefdom of the Carafa, followed
by the Francone family, and finally of Ambrogio Caracciolo.
