On December 13, 2021, the celebrations for the fifth centenary of the birth of Felice Peretti will begin. The celebrations will begin on December 13, 2021 and will end on December 13, 2022. They have been conceived as "a great scenic representation of the Sistine epic, and will therefore be the life of the great Pontiff in fixing its main stages". In 1585, at the death of Gregory XIII, he was elected Pope with the name of Sixtus V. His activity was very rich during the five years of the pontificate. He was active in the fight against banditry, carried out rigorous moralization of customs and of religious and administrative reform of the church, took care of the urban reorganization of Rome; on his initiative the Vatican Library was built and, thanks to the work of the architect Fontana, he had the famous granite obelisk erected in St. Peter's Square. In 1586 he honored Montalto with the title of city, the diocese yield and capital of the homonymous Presidiato; he gave Fermo the title of the metropolitan city. He died on 27 August 1590; the heart was brought to the church of the Saints Vincenzo and Anastasio, under the Quirinale, the body at S. Pietro, in the Vatican, from which it was moved, the following year, by the will of Cardinal Alessandro Peretti, into the Church of S. Maria Maggiore (chapel of the Blessed Sacrament) where still finds today.
