The first mention of the locality of Selvole is in 1070 but the first explicit signs of the presence of a castle go back to 1127 and 1158. it was the main site for a local noble family, the Lambardi, whose representatives became part of the dominant class in the Siena Council in the first half of the XII century. In 1230, it was assailed and destroyed by the Florentine's and in 1262 the council established that the taxes paid by the men in that community should be used to reconstruct the castle. In the following ten years it seems that the frustrating role of settlement was always less effective because in the Table of the Possessions of 1317-18, the castle is listed in the possessions of the Malavolti family, as an open village. It belonged to the same family, the Malavolti up until the 1960's.
