Pizza in Vercelli for 6 Euros. Vercelli is an ancient city in northern Italy. Famous amongst many other things for being the home of the manuscript of the great Anglo Saxon poem The Dream of The Rood. This is a poem of the Passion from a little earlier than Sigeric’s 990 pilgrimage in which Christ the King strides across the land to climb the cross with determination. The poem is written from the point of view of the cross.
Piacenza tomorrow. 84 miles through the rice fields. Flat as a pizza.
