Pontelandolfo means "bridge of Landolfo" and refers to a bridge over the L'Alenta River that was defended by the warrior Landolfo from invading Romans. This heroism is remembered and symbolized in the crest of the village and the logo of the Pontelandolfo Community Club that depicts a warrior with a spear standing on a bridge.
Immigrants from Pontelandolfo found their home in America in the Waterbury area throughout the 20th century and maintained their strong native bond by establishing the Pontelandolfo Society in 1930 and the Pontelandolfo Social Club in 1939. In 1965, these two groups merged to form the Pontelandolfo Community Club. The Ponte Women's Club was established here in 1985.
