The event, organised by the University of Florence, the EAVF in cooperation with the Tuscany Region, will take place in Florence from 4 to 6 December 2014. Over twenty five years on, this conference invites scholars, researchers, public and private actors in the sector, tour operators, associations and more, to a moment of reflection and sharing to examine the heritage of these routes, and in particular pilgrimage routes, often coinciding with ancient European thoroughfares. The themes proposed to participants are culture and society, landscape, rural, multi-functionality, quality of life, rural tourism, including economic sustainability and methods for promoting tourism, with a view to sustainable local and international development.
