basic information to know, map and credential, useful phone numbers


do you already have your credential? Then FIND OUT HOW IT WORKS!

If you have purchased the credential then it will remain in your hands much more than a simple memory!

At the end of the journey you will receive the new gadget, a unique object that will remind you of the journey every time you look at it!

We only ask you to "activate" the credential: we will only steal two minutes but you will give us the opportunity to improve the services of the Via della Lana and della Seta because we will be able, in full respect of your privacy, to register and analyze geographical data and personal data of walkers and always have under control who is on the path to ensure the safety of all!
