Le Vie di Francesco
Un cammino di spirito e natura tra Firenze, Assisi e Roma
«After all, no path is too (or too little) demanding or long. The required commitment is all in our heads, in our legs and in the serene joy, as Francis would have said, with which we decide to set out on the road”.
Fabrizio Ardito prepares his rucksack and becomes a traveler retracing the steps and places of San Francesco; he reconstructs the figure of man and saint with the help of many secular and religious characters, and he walks in search of beauty, silence and reflection in the midst of nature and monasteries. The Ways of Francis, from Tuscany to Rome, give life to a modern itinerary that touches the fundamental places of the Franciscan adventure. Monasteries and churches, villages and solemn forests, centuries-old olive groves and the imposing Valnerina are the stages of one of the most suggestive and successful European routes. Approximately 450 kilometres, a total of 24 days of walking, lead us through the Casentinesi Forests, the Tiber valley, the Subasio, the Marmore waterfall, the Valle Santa di Rieti and the Sabina up to the gates of the Eternal City. And they allow us to meet religious such as Cardinal Matteo Zuppi, Archbishop Paolo Giulietti and Father Mauro Gambetti, guardian of the Sacred Convent of Assisi; walkers, volunteers and hospitaleros who have given life to the Routes.
