Product Description

A watercolor with the highlights of the Via Francigena in medieval style celebrates the 3,200 km of the route through Europe.

It is a vintage map of the route in which twenty-five of some famous points of interest and related monuments have been represented. It starts from Canterbury Cathedral, one of the oldest cities in England and the start of the Via Francigena, to descend to France passing through Reims and Champlitte with its Ch√Ęteau. The road continues towards the Notre Dame of Lausanne in the Swiss territory, reaches Italy by crossing the Gran San Bernardo pass and from there it runs through the entire peninsula from north to south, up to Puglia.

There are many places to tell and show off their architectural heritage. The city symbol of the arrival of the journey, Rome, stands out in the center of the Peninsula and is depicted with St. Peter’s Basilica. And it couldn’t be otherwise. Sigerico over a thousand years ended his journey here and in the rooms near the tomb of the founder of the Catholic Church today the pilgrim can collect the testimonium.

A celebratory poster, a reminder for the pilgrims who have completed part of the route and a wish to those who are preparing to follow it. A source of pride for all the administrations that have passed through it and who now have the opportunity to see the path represented, which is not only physical but also and above all cultural.

The project is not a simple poster, but an object full of meanings that communicates the Europeanism of the Via Francigena and its unifying significance.
