MONTI, Luigi, author, born in Palermo, Sicily, in 1830. He was educated in his native place, served in the revolutionary army in 1848-'9, and, being exiled in 1850, came to Boston, where he became a teacher of Italian. He was instructor in Harvard in 1854-'9, and from 1861 till 1873 was United States consul at Palermo, after which he devoted himself to teaching and literature at Boston.
