FILOTTRANO, THE CITY OF FASHION

Until the 50s Filottrano was based on a rural economy, then thanks to a pioneer of the textile industry it was transformed into a city of fashion, particularly men’s fashion. 

For years the phrase “Made in Filottrano” has been represented by great tailors and manufacturing companies, who have become particularly specialized in men’s fashion. Some of these have become very well known brands. In Filottrano, there are many factory outlets where you can go shopping.

Sai che... FILOTTRANO
Nell’aprile del 1466, gli osimani effettua- rono dei saccheggi in territorio filottranese. Durante l’incursione i filottranesi furono sul punto di catturare un cavaliere osimano che, pur di fuggire, lasciò nelle loro mani lo stivale per il quale veniva trattenuto. Lo stivale divenne così il simbolo della rivalsa e ogni anno i giovani filottranesi hanno portato in giro per le vie del paese, su di un cavallo, un fantoccio di paglia che calzava lo storico stivale.
