The typical feature of the medieval suburb find at Montone one among the most perfect demonstrations. It's introduced as a fortress marvellously strengthened by high, mighty and intact boundaries. Inside the boundaries, the urban centre is crop around Piazza Fortebraccio, from which depart holds streets and steep alleys that cross every corner of the country up to reach the most elevated and panoramic points from which vast and spellbound landscapes are enjoyed. Every stone is at its place, every building is intact and maintains that ancient medieval taste that is still possible to breath. But this aspect of enchantment and of suspended time doesn't have to make to think about an immovable suburb, without life, sets under a reliquary toward which to throw a look for then quickly passing to the next one. Nothing is more distant from the essence of Montone. In this marvellous frame are developed activity and demonstrations able to attract looks, approval and pleasure at international level. Just think about prestigious Umbria Film Festival, or to the multicultural garrison of the Ethnographic Museum Il Tamburo Parlante ("The Speaking Drum"). Besides these initiatives of niche, that have known how to also converse with the great public, the traditional local demonstrations cohabit, also them of great intensity and importance as the historical event of the " Donazione della Santa Spina ", the biennial exhibition " Rassegna dei Mastri Fabbri Forgiatori " and the " Festa del Bosco."

This wise mixes that doses modernity and tradition in the correct measure makes Montone an alive, vivacious and bright suburb, that has known how to go beyond the obstacle of the small dimensions and that immobilise that sometimes determines the maintenance reaching an elevated harmony between past and future.
