The territory of Lubriano was inhabited since prehistoric times, as evidenced by many findings of flint tools and even remains of a small Bronze Age village.
In Etruscan times Lubriano was part of the state of Volsinii, the current Orvieto. There are not many traces of the Etruscan period, except the presence of some tombs, a cut (ie a road encased in a tufa) and a rudimentary aqueduct consists of an intricate network of tunnels.
In 265 A.C. after the fall of Volsinii, the Romans took possession of the territory of Lubriano and the area was colonized for agricultural purposes. To this epoch date back to the remains of clay material and structures related to a dense road network, created in order to connect the Lubrianese territory to the river Tiber's ports and to Rome.
Like many of the other cities of Tuscia, after the fall of the Roman Empire the territory saw a succession of numerous barbarian invasions that destroyed the whole area. Farming settlements were abandoned in favor of less accessible and more defensible locations.
This area was the scene of the greek-gothic war between the Goths and the Byzantines and ithe Seppie Castle is believed to belong to this period. At this stage succeded the Lombard rule.
In 1140 Lubriano and the neighboring lands, subject to Feudalism, began a war of liberation, which lasted over 20 years, which was followed by a brief occupation by Frederick Barbarossa. Later the territory was ceded to the Holy See.
In the fourteenth century Lubriano watched helplessly to the wars between the two opposing factions: the Guelphs, led by the Monaldeschi and the Ghibellines, led by Filippeschi, who competed for sovereignty over the country.
Between the end of the fourth century and the beginning of the fifth Lubriano saw the succession of many events, including the submission to Corrado Berardo Monaldeschi, the sacked from Ladislao King of Naples and the continuing conflict with neighboring Bagnoregio.
Towards the middle of the fifteenth century Lubriano was occupied by the French troops of Charles VIII.
In the sixteenth century, during the sack of Rome by the Lanzichenecchi, Lubriano also suffered the invasion of these people. From this moment on there aren't other historical events of great importance for the city of Lubriano, ecxept the building of the "Tower of the Sun" and some expansions in the Church of the Madonna del Poggio.
