The church of San Filippo has a stunning façade, characterised by an ascensional rhythm, standing out in the monumental complex: its slightly convex front, with two sets of pilasters, surrounded by a cornice, flows with the curved gable interrupted by the apex, crowned by statues of angels, and by two staircases with slightly concave balustrades.

The construction of the Sartorio began in 1740 from the sacristy, after the previous parish church, built in 1639 parallel to the road, was demolished.  The interior is laid out like a Greek cross, extending longitudinally into the presbytery: the corners are, however rounded, giving the layout a flowing and continuous perimeter, enhanced by frescoed decorations, simulating, in pale pastel colours, a marble covering using a swirling rocaille motif.

On the cupola is a fresco of the “Assunzione”, in the crests are four groups of apostles, on the vaulted ceiling of the presbytery is the “Gloria di S. Filippo Neri” and in the apsal lunette is a fresco of “La Crocifissione”, all painted by Carlo Innocenzo Carlo (1750-52). The altars in colourful marble and the iron gates are locally made; confessionals and the cupboards in the sacristy are by Girolamo Cavanna.

Above the entrance to the church is the wooden choir, painted by Federico Ferrari with a scene from the Bible, and is where the organ, dating back to 1779 is located, created by the famous organ makers in Bergamo, the Serassi brothers.
