Twelve adventurous days take him through magnificent landscapes, across mountains and valleys. Along the 300 km path crossing the Apennines Pecorino has a chance to contemplate his professional career and revisit private memories, accidents and mishaps.

Pecorino the four-pawed pilgrim is an amusing and humorous travel companion on the path to Assisi.
