Montone is a city in Umbria in central Italy.

Understand[edit]

Montone is a peaceful hilltown in a beautiful panoramic position between two tributaries of the Tiber river. It was formerly controlled by the families which dominated the area, such as the Del Monte, the Fortebraccio and the Vitelli families. However, around the middle of the 16th century the town was ceded to the Papal State.
