FuoriVia together with Università IUAV di Venezia (Italy) in cooperation with municipalities, museums, local institution, local communities etc. The project FuoriVia Egnatia carries on the long legacy of the Itinerant Seminary of Urban and Landscape ecology (hold by Prof. Virginio Bettini, Iuav, from 2000, along Camino de Santiago, then trough Via Fracigena and now on Via Egnatia.

We will walk for two weeks following the traces of the ancient Via Egnatia, a roman commercial route that connect Durazzo to Istambul. Walking will be our peculiar approach to understand the territory along the route, in order to produce a complex and multi-layer analysis on its historical, cultural and environmental heritage.

We will go back in Greece! From Thessaloniki, where we arrived last year, until Kavala.
The intermediary stops will be: Lagyna – Lagkadikia – Nea Apollonia – Rentina – Asprovalta – Amphipolis – Paleokomi – Rodolivos – Kormista – Philippi.

Fuorivia wants to activate the process of re-development of Via Egnatia trough an approach of sustainable and conscious tourism. From an ancient lost route, Via Egnatia has the potential to evolve in a new path of connection between cultures, specifically designed for slow and walking journeys. The project started in 2015 (Durrës, Albania) and it will go on until 2019 (Istambul, Turkey).

We will be a big group (around 40 people) composed by students, researchers, professors and experts, but also people passionate about walking. Every day, we will walk around 20Km, supported by a small van, bringing materials and luggages. We will be hosted in public structures (school gyms, classrooms, sport fields etc.) arranged thanks to local administration support.

Along the path, together we will study the possible strategies to enhance the values of Via Egnatia in a multidisciplinary framework, in close relationship with institutions, associations and local communities. Different thematic workshop have been planned to elaborate a final concrete project proposal.

Departure: 16th of August from Milan.
Return: 1st of September to Milan.
