Municipality of Fiuggi

History of the town

 

Fiuggi is a famous Italian thermal town, originally called Felcia and later Anticoli. Already well known to the Romans, Fiuggi’s water with its diuretic property was used in the treatment of nephrolithiasis by famous historic people, as Pope Boniface VIII and Michelangelo, who described it "the water which breaks the stone". Due to its close and strategic proximity to the cities of Rome and Naples, Fiuggi annually hosts a large flux of tourists in its remarkable hotel facilities and at cultural events and conferences of great importance. The medieval hill town is still a relaxing city on a human scale, which also offers an enchanting natural heritage, the charm of the old town center and a genuine enogastronomic tradition. Each year, there is the 

Fiuggi Family Festival. It is a film festival entirely dedicated to families. The Festival aims at recognizing as a fact that the biggest successes of the past years have been feature films dedicated to families. The five editions of the event have achieved a great audience success.
