Abbadia di Montepulciano takes its name from the Romanesque Benedictine abbey of St Peter of Argiano, near the current eighteenth century Bastogi farms. A small church and other areas remain which are not open to the public. The place name comes from the Etruscan nobleman “Arna”. It took on Lombard names in the Middle Ages: Badia dei Caggiolari (gahagi is a “fondo base”), or Badia a Crepaldo, referring to Garipald staff.
