MONTONE: Uno dei borghi più belli d'Italia
Montone is one of the very first villages in Italy listed by the Tourism Council of the National Association of Italian Local Councils (A.N.C.I.) as uno dei borghi più belli d'Italia and therefore one of the first members of the 'Group of Most Beautiful Towns in Italy'.
The Group was established to protect, promote and improve all council areas listed by the Tourism Council as 'The Most Beautiful Towns in Italy'.
The purpose of the listing is to publicise the network of member towns as very desirable tourist destinations and to ensure their continuing economic development while safeguarding and respecting their historic, artistic, architectural and environmental heritage.
Montone's entry to the Group was approved only after a rigorous technical and scientific evaluation, to ensure that it met the A.N.C.I.'s historic, artistic, architectural and environmental requirements.
As a result of its admission to the Group of Most Beautiful Towns in Italy, Montone is bound to ensure continuing compliance with the admission requirements and to allow development of the village only in accordance with the Group's Constitution.
