Forgiveness and mutual acceptance are able to create unbreakable balance and peace. This historical need turns the Cammino del Perdono in something more than just a tourist route. Through our paths, in fact, it is possible to better understand the past situation, and how difficult it was, and the solution that led to tolerance, peace and mutual growth. It is a pole of study, a cultural process, a tool for local valorization and it is open to all cultures, all religions, to any person of any social condition and background. The clear purpose it pursues is to offer a chance of growing, understanding, socializing, analyzing, introspecting, in places and conditions that are unique and unrepeatable, since they bear the mark of “Forgiveness as instrument to reach peace”. The Cammino del Perdono uses the tourist experience to create an emotional and cultural condition impossible to classify into the standards of age, religion or income. It wants to establish itself as model of sustainable, intercultural and interreligious tourism, on the international and global level. It is not just a tourist system but a pole of research and a way of reconstructing those proceedings that realized the peace and marked the history of Humanity, proceedings that seem now so very actual, current and futurist. It can teach a model of tolerance, mutual enrichment, coexistence, each of them universal and open to all human beings.
