preparatory path


Explanation:
This "prelettura" is described in many sites about the Holy Shroud. It is made not only of reading (even though visitors receive a brochure), but also of seeing large format images, etc., on their way to the Holy Shroud. All this in preparation of the moment in which visitors actually see the relic.
