In this place in Sabina, the Greeks had their Mefila colony which then became Roman. It seems that Scandriglia arose on this colony and later was characterized by many rustic villas. The area was almost entirely occupied by the agricultural lands  of the villa of the senatorial family Scandillii. From this family comes the name of the town.

After this period, Scandriglia was then officially mentioned by the name of ‘Fundum Scandilianum’ in the writings of Pope Stephen IV (817) and Emperor Lothair I (840).

In the Middle Ages the local people gathered around a castrum under the protection of the Abbey of Farfa. Later, starting in the fifteenth century, it was granted to the Orsini family and in 1639 was forfeited to the Holy See.
