A journey on foot along the Via Francigena becomes, step by step, something deeper. A book that is good for the soul.
Venture on a journey on foot simply to take a different holiday than usual and realize, along the way, that you have embarked on something different, an inner and deep ’journey’ in the most hidden meanderings of the soul. Finding out that solitude and silence heighten sensitivity, too often mortified by a schizophrenic everyday life, and that ’slowness’ is not a defect but a formidable magnifying glass on the world, on people and above all on our lives. Suddenly feel the urge to ’slow down’ in order not to miss the moments for which it is really worth living and understand that ’slowness’ is a medicine that can heal us from the frenzy of living and get closer to the ’Sense’ of existence .
