In this book, the author shows how those centuries really were, that is to say constantly on the move. Emperors, princes and popes with their armies but also, and mainly, merchants, bandits, pilgrims, people seeking their fortune or their social redemption and also women. All of them travelling long distances, in dangerous conditions, sometimes to the limit of human possibilities. The work is historical, accurate and includes references to tens of works and historiographers dealing with the subject of travelling in the Middle Ages, analyzing different trends. You are going to find out who departed in the Middle Ages and why, you will find plenty of information about roads, inns and different kinds of accommodation. It also includes a chapter about pilgrimage: both religious and judicial pilgrimages. A book for Middle Ages lovers but not only. Original title in Italian: Medioevo in viaggio. Locande strade e pellegrini.
