The Via Francigena promotes an heritage connected to European cultural identities, starting from an historical itinerary that is conveyed by a group of roads, along which the history of Europe formed during the last centuries.

To discover this 1800 kms path across England, France, Switzerland and Italy, on the ancient footsteps of medieval pilgrims that walked towards great destinations, such as Rome, Santiago de Compostela or Jerusalem, on the 22nd April 2001 the European Association of the Vie Francigene (EAVF) was created. As subject officially qualified by the Council of Europe, EAVF interacts with European institutions, regions, local communities to promote the values of the path and of the pilgrims, starting from the sustainable development of the territories by means of a cultural, identity, touristic approach.
