The project The Way to Jerusalem emphasises the value of the ancient terrestrial and maritime routes used by merchants and pilgrims, secular and religious figures on the long journeys to Jerusalem, one of the most important destinations of the 'peregrinationes maiores'.
The proposed itinerary, of cultural and spiritual interest, will link the countries of central and southeastern Europe with Mediterranean countries: the objective is to emphasise and above all consolidate the centuries- old historic and cultural relationship between the various regions involved, promoting new opportunities for cultural and socio-economic dialogue and cooperation between European, Asiatic and African regions.
