Peschiera del Garda Unesco heritage. An honor but also a burden
“Venetian defense works between the 16th and 17th centuries: Land State – Western Sea State”. This is the name of the new site included in the list of world heritage sites of humanity during the 41st session of the World Heritage Committee in Krakow. This is the 53rd Italian site, but in reality it is a transnational site, presented by Italy, together with Croatia and Montenegro.
The defense works built by the Republic of Venice in Bergamo, Palmanova and Peschiera del Garda for Italy, Zadar and Sibenik for Croatia, and Cattaro for Montenegro have joined the Unesco sites.
An honor, but also a burden at this point. Because now the Venetian fortress of Peschiera del Garda must be maximized to allow a sustainable and high quality tourism. Moreover, since it is officially a unique site even if it is spread in three different countries, the only plan must be to coordinate the plan for its development and conservation. The partnership between Peschiera and the other municipalities, created to bring this application to a successful conclusion, must therefore continue.
