The community experienced its greatest splendor and today’s testimony makes clear, under the pontificate of its most famous citizen: Brother Felix Peretti, Cardinal Montalto and then ascended to the throne of Peter in 1585 under the name of Sixtus V. The love for her beloved city was total; created in 1586 in Montalto a Presidiato autonomous by Brand provincial, dependent only on the Holy See. The papal munificence, that has made this city “City of Sixtus V”, granted in Montalto to become one of the cultural and artistic centers most active and full of interest, thanks to a series of works worthy of special mention, such as , ilReliquario Sistine, a work of unique and unquestionable beauty, made of gold and precious stones, of Flemish art, donated to citizens in 1589.
