The “Padova Urbs Picta” Sites and Montecatini Terme included in the World Heritage List of UNESCO

The UNESCO World Heritage Committee, meeting online for its 44th session, has decided to include two new Italian sites in the World Heritage List.

They are respectively “Padova Urbs Picta”, with the Scrovegni Chapel and its 14th century fresco cycles, and Montecatini Terme, the latter being included in the “Great SPAs of Europe” circuit and part of a transnational candidacy promoted by Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, the United Kingdom, the Czech Republic and Italy.

This brings the total number of Italian sites on the World Heritage List to 57, making Italy the country with the highest number of entries on the World Heritage List. This result is further proof of the extraordinary wealth of Italy’s cultural and natural heritage.
