Ficulle is a comune (municipality) in the Province of Terni in the Italian region Umbria, located about 40 km southwest of Perugia and about 60 km northwest of Terni. As of 31 December 2004, it had a population of 1,730 and an area of 64.7 km².
The origins of the town and the castle date back to the 11th century even though it is supposed to have been born in the beginning as a trading station of the Roman Empire. Because of the excellent territorial position, Ficulle was contended by two noble families: Monaldeschi and Filippeschi, both from Orvieto. It suffered their struggles until 1416 A.D., when the town passed under control of the Papal States.
