Name's origin:It is hard to assert what the name of the town originally was, since it has come down to us in many different forms: Aguiglarium, Aquilarium, Agugiaro, Aquilario e Lagugiaro. Some link it with with aquila (=eagle) or acucula (=a thicket).

History: Agugliaro first appears in a 1297-1303 document, where Agugiaro'schurch is mentioned. From 1288, 14th and 15th century documents it seems that what is now Agugliaro's territory alone was shared by two different towns: Agugliaro and the today no-more-existent Fogliascheda. In 1462 Alessandro Pigafetta bought from Serenissima Republic of Venice the town and territory of Agugliaro as a county, and in 1473 and in 1481 Matteo Pigafetta bought land from the Dal Verme family, which seems to have in a very ancient past the most conspicuous in Agugliaro (from Il Veneto paese per paese", Casa Editrice Bonechi)
