Abstract

The General Direction for Libraries, Cultural Institutes and Copyright is promoting a project on the “Historical, cultural and religious itineraries valorization” and is achieving an institutional Portal dedicated to Italian Francigena track to create an unified gateway access for cultural and touristic contents concerning the Francigena route. The aim of the Portal is to offer news, events, cultural itineraries, interactive maps, virtual exhibitions, information, documents and images that represent the historical, cultural and religious heritage along one of the most important European pilgrimage routes, catalogued with innovative tools for managing taxonomies which allow advanced searches and geographical access to wide information. User may organize, in “Create your itinerary”, his virtual or real journey sharing contents on the Francigena in the “community”.
