“Step by step” returns this year to take participants on a discovery of the Piacenza territory of the Via Francigena.

The initiative, organised by the Fiorenzuola in Movimento association, proposes 5 events between May and September, dedicated to “History, stories, routes and protagonists of the Via Francigena”. It’s a chance to raise awareness of the territory by offering opportunities which encourage route enhancement started with the EAVF’s “I Love Francigena” event.

There are three events planned so far. To celebrate the new season, is a walk along the route on Saturday 25th May from Roveleto di Cadeo to Fiorenzuola d’Arda (postponed due to bad weather). The next event will begin in Fiorenzuola d’Arda for the Festa di Primavera (Spring Celebration) on 26th May, with a display stand and exploratory hike along the Via Francigena. The final event will be on Sunday 30th June in Piacenza, city along the Francigena, with stops in places of interest.

Another event will discover Cortemaggiore with a 10km country hike at sunset in 4th August, and Sunday 8th September will host another hike from Castell’Arquato to Lugagnano.
