    Filleting is a “decorative thread” that revolutionized Buenos Aires at the beginning of the 20th century with its shapes and colors, when italian immigrants working at carriage factories introduced these ornamentations. UNESCO declared this art as an Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity. It is a walking tour around the neighborhood of San Telmo, visiting the most important points of Fileteado Porteño, finishing at the Fileteadores Association where tourists will learn the filleting techniques by the hand of one of the teachers of this discipline.
