During the "Comuni in Cammino" Forum in Monteriggioni we also talked about the Via Francigena of the South.
Administrators and associations have shared plans and perspectives on the development of the routes which, from Rome arrive at the ports of Puglia. Angelofabio Attolico, EAVF technical manager of the Southern Via Francigena and delegate of the region of Puglia, updated on the state of the route and work conducted by the regions of Lazio, Campania, Puglia, Basilicata and Molise.
"The Francigena of the South is at a turning point -explains Attolico in a video interview with the European Association of Via Francigena Ways - After all this time we now have a single, precise, geolocated route from Lazio to Puglia, finally officially decided by the regions. Now that the main route and its variants have been decided, we are now working on safeguarding the route and adding signage through the CIPE funds and the Ministry".
It will be hard work, but shared on the occasion of an important event, explains Angelofabio: "In Autumn 2019, Bari will host the European Association of Via Francigena Ways (EAVF) General Assembly, where we will present the new route and propose our official entrance to the European family of the Francigena. We're working towards the 'arrival point' of this project. The new guide of the Via Francigena of the South is due to be released in 2020".
