The interior part of town, accessed by two monumental city gates (among which you’ll find the porta Sud dating to 1500, remodeled two centuries later with diamond-pointed ashlars), houses a church dedicated to the saints Filippo and Giacomo. You’ll also find the Palazzo of the Marquis Ariberti (home to Malgrate and Filetto nobles from the 17th to 18th century), an impressive 17th-century building connected to the church by two elegant elevated passageways. On the piazza’s opposite side you’ll find the Frati Ospitalieri Convent, a vast 17th-century complex featuring a beautiful internal cloister. Last but not least, check out the 19th-century parish church adorned with an imposing bell tower.
Close to town you can also visit the San Genesio Oratory dating to the 16th century located in the mysterious woodlands surrounding Filetto. It’s said that many tribal festivals and meetings took place here in prehistoric times (where many stele statues have been found).
In August, Filetto hosts a Medieval Market, a time of year when the town turns back the clock and decks the area with medieval decorations, including jugglers, fortune tellers, minstrels, acrobats and traditional local artisanal products made of iron, wood and stone.
