Tentennano o meglio Titinianum emerge dalle nebbie della storia in alcuni atti notarili del mille: all’epoca esisteva già quindi una rocca con il suo piccolo borgo. La Rocca nella sua forma attuale dovrebbe essere stata costruita intorno al 1100 – 1200 dalla famiglia Aldobrandeschi che dominava la Toscana meridionale (un Aldobrandeschi era anche il Papa Gregorio VII).

The origins of the fortress are almost certainly Etruscan: in the gardens of the country were found fragments of Etruscan and Roman pottery. The name of "Tentennano" - documented in medieval form "Titinianum" - could come from the Etruscan "Tinia" namely Jupiter, the father of the gods: you can also suggestive hypotheses: the spur attracted the lightning hurled from Tinia? or there was a sanctuary of Tinia? (we are close Amiata, the "Holy Mountain" Etruscan ...).
Tentennano or better Titinianum emerges from the mists of history in some deeds of a 1.000 age, at the time there was already then a rock with his small village. the Rocca in its current form should have been built around 1100 - 1200 by the Aldobrandeschi family that dominated the southern Tuscany (a Aldobrandeschi was also Pope Gregory VII).
