There were many Scarlato's in Montalto. After the unification of Italy, most of them changed the surname to Sgarlato. During the catasto period (mid 1700's) there were not that many Scarlato families living in Montalto which leads us to believe they originated in another town or towns. Scarlato's were living in many towns near Montalto and at least one family came to Montalto from Marano Marchesato. I descend from 2 different Scarlato women that were probably different families. Because they lived before the state civil records, I have been unable to connect their families. This index is just beginning. I have plans to add several Scarlato families here.

There were many women named Rosa Scarlato. I have been researching 4 of them who were the early matriarch's of of families bearing the surnames of Saullo, Napolitano, DiSeta/DeSeta and Arturi.
The surname Scarlato was changed to Sgarlato around the time of the unification of Italy. Some people did keep the original spelling of the name.
