Massimiliano from Rome- "I am an experienced pilgrim with lots of kilometers travelled, from Rome I have travelled on the Compostela path and on Francigena Way : the current emergency situation had stopped me to follow the project I have planned for 2020, but I took the chance to walk over Francigena Way to meet some Piedmonts friends."
