The existence of the town is documented since the 11th century. During the Norman rule of southern Italy, it was completely destroyed. Later it became a fiefdom of Raona of Fragneto. Other important feudal families were the Caracciolo, the Della Leonessa and the Della Marra.
The most important event is the Montemarano Carnival with its tarantella montemaranese, an ancient tradition of the place.
The economy depends on agriculture, mostly on vineyards.
