When I came in Umbria the first time the nature, the landscapes and the wide expanse of green captured my gaze hypnotizing me.
It’s quite different when you look to the sea - that’s a moment with no equals- e cause in front of such greening hills you feel you can set out and go no waiting for the water calm down or you don’t fear anymore the infinity of the sea.
The “walk” is a common activity bere in Umbria and it’s promoted in different types by many local organizationsa.
The most recently project is “La Via del Trasimeno”, the first laboratory of the walking-therapy, a circular itinerary of seven steps, 160km long around the Lake Trasimeno. It promotes the “Walking” as a wellness tool and as a sustainable activity to know the surrounding environment.
The creator is Fabrizio Pepini, from Passignano sul Trasimeno. He experienced the Santiago Path and the Francigena and after that he came back in Umbria with his will to go on walking.
By a cooperation and friendship with Massimiliano Cremona the book “Camminare guarisce” (“Walking heals”) was born - where you can read about the impressive Fabrizio Pepini’s story - and then the homonymous Association.
The “Trasimeno paths” are the same traced by C.A.I. and by other regional associations with the new identity of a “path” for “people looking for rediscover themselves out of the frenetic rythm of the city, backpacking and starting a new journey”.
Yesterday, friday 6th, the project is presented at Passignano sul Trasimeno.
The association proposes the paths of different duration and for different kinds.
