Emilia Romagna is a region with a tradition linked deeply to walking routes, within our historic routes i the Via Francigena. – says the EAVF – Last year, with I Love Francigena, collaborating with APT Emilia Romagna, we brought lots of hikers together along the Emilian section of Sigeric’s route, between the provinces of Parma and Piacenza with the aim to enhance the European route. This was the first of a series of fruitful meetings thanks to our collaboration with ATP. The fair in Bologna preceds the Fa’ la cosa giusta! event planned in Milan from 8th-10th March – another important event for the promotion of the Francigena. Our association will participate in other international fairs throughout the year“.
