A resting point for pilgrims traveling through San Miniato on the Via Francigena. Just as the Maltini husband and wife had thought, their initiative to provide a small bench on the via Parini street in San Miniato Basso, has, over time, become increasingly more welcoming.
The generous couple go out every morning to leave out cold water, snacks and fresh fruit for travelers – all for free. “Since setting up the bench – says Mrs. Maltinti – many people passing by who have appreciated our initiative, leave their signature which now fill an entire book. “
Mayor Vittorio Gabbanini and Member of Council David Spalletti extend their thanks to the municipal administration which provides maps of San Miniato and an information booklet on the Via Francigena to pilgrims. The pilgrims who pass by Via Parini can share pictures and comments about their journey on the Facebook page, Piccolo Ristoro Via Parini, also accessible by clicking the QR code directly from their smartphone.
