Biographical / Historical
In 1585, when Felice Peretti, who had studied in the convent of "Delle Fratte" at Montalto, was elected pope under the name of Sixtus V, he gave Montalto a city title making it head of an autonomous ruling. It was called the State of Montalto and had a jurisdiction over town and villages which went from the Sibillino mountains to the Adriatic Sea. The Venetian printer Giovanni Giubari was active at Montalto between 1586 and 1590 and also worked at Fabriano, Fermo and Ascoli Piceno.
