According to some, the origin of the placename Castello di Uviglie can be linked to the Latin term “ovilia” a plural for “ovile”, sheepfold, confirming the primitive pastoral organization of the area. Others instead maintain that “Uviglie” comes from the roman patronymic “Avilius” which has left quite a few traces in the area. The name made its first appearance on a document dated November 1271 kept in the capitular archives of Casale Monferrato.
