Scanzano Jonico gained its administrative independence from the nearby town of Montalbano Jonico, only in 1974. Located in an area inhabited since ancient times, the village developed only in the Middle Ages, under the supervision of the Basilian monks of St. Elias di Carbone (a small town of the Pollino area). Over the centuries the town submitted the domain of Pedro de Toledo and several other feudal families.
