Early Origins of the Monteleone family

The surname Monteleone was first found in Treviso, anciently Tarvisium, a town in Venetia, capital of the province of Treviso where Montello is a bean-shaped hill which measures about 5 km north-south by 13 km east-west. The cathedral of San Pietro is notable and dates back to 1141. It is classical style with seven domes with works by many notable painters and sculptors. The Piazza dei Signori has many palaces. In the 6th century this town was a seat of a Lombard duke. Charlemagne held it. Later it was Venetian.

In those ancient times only persons of rank, the podesta, clergy, city officials, army officers, artists, and landowners were entered into the records. To be recorded at this time, at the beginning of recorded history, was of itself a great distinction and indicative of noble ancestry. This distinguished family are recorded in Trevos but are said originally to have been of Selva, but these records are scanty.

Today, Giavera del Montello is a comune (municipality) in the Province of Treviso in the Italian region Veneto, about 40 kilometres (25 mi) northwest of Venice.
