In the nearby localities called Cerri and Coccetta there were archeological findings of the Italic period (before the Roman occupation). In medieval times the Normans built the castle with the tower called "dei Paladini", and their commander, Roscio from Lichtenberg, gave his name to the place, that appeared in the Catalogue of the Barons (1150-1168) as Russanum. Belonging to Chieti in 1495, it came later under the De Felici from Pianella.
