Discover Lombardy step by step: the ancient roads, traveled in the past by pilgrims and merchants in the fields and woods, along rivers and lakes. This is an opportunity offered by the LinC – Lombardy in Cammino (Lombardy on the Way) project, to an audience of walkers and travelers, families, youth and schools. All of them share the idea that the journey is an instrument of self-knowledge and of the territory. The project, supported by the Lombardy Region, aims to develop a regional network of paths involving the territories crossed, associations that promote slow mobility and accessibility, municipalities, provinces, hiking associations, public bodies and tourism schools, just to name a few of them.

 12 selected paths will be provided with a visual identity and a system of physical and digital “over-signals” aimed at enhancing the routes and their interconnections; realization of a Guide of the Paths in Lombardy in Italian and English (with an e-book version and an APP); development of a multimedia platform in Italian and English on the website; application of the Path Analysis Model on two sample paths; production and promotion of integrated tourist packages.

The press conference, scheduled on Monday, 30 September at 11am at the Sala Solesin of Palazzo Lombardia (1st floor entrance N4), Piazza Città di Lombardia 1, Milan, includes greetings from Stefano Bruno Galli, Councilor for Autonomy and Culture of the Lombardy Region and two introductory interventions –  by the project leader, Triwù Srl, and the Italian Touring Club, project partner.

Aspects related to the theme of traditions, material and intangible culture, micro and macro economy in the territories crossed by the roads will be discussed during the round table managed by Alberto Pugnetti of Radio Francigena and will involve organizations, municipalities and the paths.
