The first town to declare its independence in 1084, over the centuries Foiano della Chiana was at the center of the bloody struggle between Florence, Siena and Arezzo. After a short period of Sienese domination in the 12th century, Arezzo conquered the town and ruled it until 1336, when it was conquered by Florence.
In 1554, close to Foiano della Chiana, precisely in Pozzo della Chiana, the Florentine army defeated Siena in the famous battle of Scannagallo, which every year is re-enacted at the end of May. Every year in Foiano della Chiana is also held a celebrated carnival.
