Hi Valeriano, 
Thank you for using Syncfusion Products. 
The reported requirement “Defining the ItemTemplate in external XAML file” can be achieved by ResourceDictionary and you can define the template in any file within the ResourceDictionary and access it by key which is defined for each template. Here, we have create the DataTemplate for ItemTemplate in the Resources dictionary of App.xaml file as like below code snippet and bind the Key to the ItemTemplate property in MainPage.xaml. 
Code Example[XAML]: 
      <DataTemplate x:Name="CustomTemplate" x:Key="CustomTemplate"> 
        <Grid x:Name="grid" RowSpacing="1"> 
?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?> 
    <local:ContactsViewModel x:Name="viewModel"/> 
      <listView:SfListView x:Name="listView" ItemSize="70"  
                           ItemTemplate="{StaticResource CustomTemplate}" 
                           ItemsSource="{Binding Contactsinfo}"  
For you reference, we have attached the sample and you can download it from the below link. 
Please let us know if you require further assistance.
