Montemarano is a town and comune of the province of Avellino in the Campania region of southern Italy.



The existence of the town is documented since the 11th century. During Norman times it was attacked by Ruggiero and completely destroyed. Later it became a fiefdom of Raona of Fragneto. Other important feudal lords were the Caracciolo, the Della Leonessa and the Della Marra.

Montemarano was also the seat of a Roman Catholic Diocese between the years of 1059-1818. [1] [2] Its first bishop, St. John of Montemarano[3], is honored with a statue in the town.


The most important event is the famous Montemarano Carnival with its known tarantella montemaranese, an ancient tradition of the place.


The economy depends on agriculture, notably vineyards. One of the more famous wineries of Montemarano and the surrounding region is the Aminea winery. Aminea wines can be found in some American wine shops.
