Until 1862 it was known simply as Castiglione. It takes its current name from the philosopher and economist Antonio Genovesi, who was born here in 1713.


Located on the hillside below Monna Mountain, part of the Monti Picentini Regional Park, Castiglione borders with the municipalities of Baronissi, Fisciano, Giffoni Sei Casali, Salerno, San Cipriano Picentino and San Mango Piemonte. It has no hamlets (frazioni).
