The tour  uncovered the city’s most picturesque perspectives through the eyes of six Italian photographers (Cantalupi, Chiolini, Manidi, Nazzari, Sacchi, and Valli), as well as the attractions of its historic surroundings. The tour examined the Augustinian heritage of Pavia, by focusing on the story of how Saint Augustine’s body arrived in the church of San Pietro in Ciel dâ Oro.
