Francesca Montana is the very large, very feisty sister of Old Niccolo Montana. She is the heart of Montana family traditions, and looks after her brother with ferocious, bossy care. She seems to appear most frequently in the kitchen, although when it comes to fighting with the Petrocchis in the street, it turns out she is no slouch at that as well. Francesca ends up being the one who is so utterly furious at the Petrocchis that she roars out "I demand single combat!" and as a result, each family has to appoint a champion. Don't get Francesca mad at you -- you'll regret it.
