Venice has been confirmed as an emblematic site on the UNESCO World Heritage List

During its 45th session in Riyadh (Saudi Arabia), the UNESCO World Heritage Committee confirmed Venice as an emblematic site of the UNESCO list, thus excluding the city from the list of World Heritage Sites in Danger. The possibility of including Venice and its Lagoon among the UNESCO sites at risk was announced a few weeks ago following a formal proposal by one of UNESCO’s technical advisory bodies.

“We could only achieve such an important result through the intense work carried out by the Italian Government and coordinated by the Farnesina over the last months” – stated the Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs, Antonio Tajani – “Having Venice recognised as an emblematic UNESCO Site is certainly the result of Italy’s commitment to protect and enhance its heritage, a sector where our Country shows competence and expertise to share with all the Member States”.
