The small town of Capolona is located along the River Arno and serves as the natural gateway to the serene and very beautiful Casentinodal.
The town is strategically located in relation to the surrounding valleys and has always played and continues to play a strong role economically and historically relative to the rest of the province. This wealth can be seen in the surroundings in the form of many castles, churches, bridges and other reputed structures.
The town dates back to the Middle Ages. The old town is situated along the river and is connected to the opposite bank of an old bridge that is most probably of Roman origin and which has been repeatedly restored. It looks almost brand new after it was heavily damaged in 1944.
