The town was already inhabited during V-IV century b.C.
The modern Casalsoprano is made of the ancient hamlets that in the past were part with others of San Mauro del Cilento territory: the core of this hamlet was the church, life developed around it.
At the beginning of XIV century, San Mauro was destroyed by Angevin and Aragon domination.
This territory developed during Longobard domination and thanks to the presence of Greek-Italian monks. Some Greek families escaped from Turks in 1453 and moved to San Mauro, they chose San Mauro because the legitimate heir of Byzantium throne lived there, as a hostage between Naples and Byzantine Empire.
San Mauro became a feud of Sanseverino family until the Conspiracy of the Barons when the Sanseverino lost all their territories. In 1504 the family returned in its territories. During XVI and XVII centuries different families ruled this area. The last proprietor was Francesco Vetere.
