In Assisi following the steps of St. Francis: the pilgrimage of the International Congress of Sant'Egidio

Young people from 39 countries in the world, especially from Asia, Africa and Latin America, taking part in the international congress "Everything can change", gathered in Assisi on Friday 24th May for a pilgrimage in the footsteps of St. Francis, visiting the places where the Saint lived, preached and where he is now buried.

A pilgrimage to a city that is known throughout the world as the city of peace, thanks to the message that the story of St. Francis has forever linked to the place.

The pilgrimage was preceded by a conference of Prof. Alessandro Zuccari on the figure of Saint Francis, his life and his message.
