The European Association of the Vie Francigene has marked its 15th anniversary with a meeting in Fidenza and Piacenza attended by delegates from Italy, Switzerland, France. Belgium and England. CPR Chairman Brian Mooney and Canterbury Representative Julia Peters were also there. They are pictured here with AEVF Président Massimo Tedeschi. The AEVF groups together the municipalities and city and Regional councils along the way and fosters the Via Francigena as a major Cultural Route. The meeting heard pleas for more infrastructure, especially in France, and for improved waymarking but the overall message was that a great deal had been achieved in 15 years and that development of the Via Francigena would continue apace.
