Rignano Flaminio is a comune (municipality) in the Metropolitan City of Rome in the Italian region Latium, about 35 kilometres (22 mi) north of Rome. It is across the Via Flaminia.

Rignano Flaminio borders the municipalities of Calcata, Capena, Civitella San Paolo, Faleria, Magliano Romano, Morlupo, and Sant'Oreste.

It has a station on the Roma-Viterbo railway.

History

Agricultural settlements of the Capenati and Falisci in the area are attested from the 5th or 4th centuries BC. In the 6th century AD a popular pilgrimage church, entitled to St. Abondius and Abondantius, was created here; the saints' relics were moved to Rome, on the Tiber Island, in 999. In 1159 Pope Adrian IV died at Rignano.

Rignano was first a possession of Santa Maria in Trastevere and then of the Savelli family, who were shortly ousted by Pope Alexander VI. After the fall of the Borgia, the Savelli regained it and held the fief until 1607, when they sold it to the Borghese. It later passed to the Muti, the Cesi and the Massimo families.
