Monte di Pietà activities

History
There are no monographic studies dedicated to the history of the Monte di pietà of Belforte. Its activity is documented from the fifteenth century, but it is not currently possible to discerne the date of its foundation. The preserved documentation documents its activity from the sixteenth century to 1781, which has thus been taken as the ending date of the activity itself, since an official date for its closing is unknown

Archival history
The documentation produced by the Monte between sixteenth and eighteenth century is surely preserved at the Archivio di Stato in Macerata. From the data è published by Meneghin in her study, it would appear that also fifteenth-century documents are preserved.
