the yellow arrow…
The yellow arrow on the routes of VIA DELLA COSTA is bifront because indicates two destinations: Santiago of Compostela and Rome.
The yellow arrow “I’m lost in the safety, simplicity, functionality and inexpensiveness of a simple yellow arrow, ready to drive me for 1000 and more km. I have felt cuddled, beloved, every day I looked for it and every day I found it; it points out your way; you turn the eye, you see it on the path, on a stone, on a telegraph-pole, sometime in the shine of its colour, or faded by the sun, nobody removes it, nobody touches it, in its stillness it moves with you, a lot of times I have lost it, but I(thanks Walter!) have always found again . So many times it has been friend of loneliness, more I continued in my way and more it became part of my pilgrimage, of my days, with the strength to bring me in an ancient world of signs respected of easy consultation but of extraordinary effectiveness and safety. 2002″ the Yellow Arrow accompanies thousand of Pilgrims, to the discovery of themselves and the conquest of Santiago…”
