Commune in the province of Potenza

This village has a peculiar structure with a central core and 35 smaller villages spread into 7 main areas. Its name probably comes from ‘spinning of wool’, a wide-spread activity because of the several sheep farming places.

The Church of Santa Maria del Rosario, built in 1830, has one nave and a marble altar.

Just outside the village some rock paintings were found, representing hunts in ochre colours, and showing that this area was already lived in during pre-history.

Filiano is famous for its very good cheeses, in particular the ‘pecorino’, which is very well appreciated.
