HISTORICAL NOTES

The Tau, symbol of the Hospital of Saint Jacopo’s Order which was born during the second half of the XIth century along the Via Francigena with the aim of giving assistance to the many pilgrims that traveled towards Rome. During three centuries, the Tau Knights, named for the way they used to keep their sword on their Tau adorned cloak to protect the pilgrims during their pilgrimage, welcomed all the people that showed up at the Magione of Altopascio and in the other “obeientie” spread all around Europe, hosting them in the common canteen, where they would welcome the poor and the rich with no difference, and giving help in the avant-guarde medical care hospital created for that puropse.
