Montoro is an Italian comune (municipality) of the province of Avellino, Campania. The municipal seat is the town of Piano and, as of 2015, its population was of 19,668.[1]


Following a referendum, the municipality was officially created on 3 december 2013, after the merging of Montoro Inferiore and Montoro Superiore.[2] In 2015, it gains the town status thanks to a presidential decree signed by Sergio Mattarella.[3]
