The Sacra di San Michele announces the contents of the new issue of the “Via Francigena and the European Cultural Routes” magazine. The 46th edition of the biannual magazine of the European Association of Via Francigena Ways will be presented on Saturday 1st December at 3:30pm at the Castle and Civic Museum of Susa.

The special of this semester will be dedicated to Piedmont, to the Francigena routes with a focus on the Valle di Susa and the Via Francigena Ciclovia project. A photographic and narrative journey to discover the slow routes for hikers, but also for families to discover the territory and symbolic places, such as the Sacra di San Michele, the Morainic Amphitheatre of Ivrea and, of course, food and wine.

The numerous and varied contents make this issue unique. The two editorials, signed by Natacha Bouchart, mayor of Calais and Yves Krattinger, President of the Department of Haute-Saône, confirm the greatness of the cultural route and the institutional commitment to its development. Teamwork without borders, is on the Italian side too, with the important conference organised at the Abbazia di Spineto in Tuscany as an integrated political strategy dedicated to routes.

A strategy also implemented by the EAVF on several fronts. The European association of Via Francigena Ways starts towards the end of 2018 with two important partnerships: the historic agreement with the Fédération Française de la Randonnée Pédestre and the support for the development of the territory by Banca Generali Private.

Small steps for a great route. As in history, today it is modern pilgrims who meet on the ancient route connecting from Canterbury to Rome. The pages dedicated to events narrate the slow-moving activities organised in recent months: among these the successful “I Love Francigena” events in Emilia Romagna. In addition to space for taste and relaxation with Parmigiano Reggiano and the thermal spa offer in Tuscany.
