  10. 10. Management plan This is why in Italy, since 2002:1. each request for membership in the World Heritage Listmust be accompanied by a management plan describinghow the exceptional value of the site will be protected;2. guidelines were developed for the preparation andimplementation of management plans;3. a specific methodology and a model for theimplementation of management plans were defined;4. the debate on management plans, promoted andcoordinated by the Italian Ministry of Culture, wasaccompanied by a series of national conferences(Noto 2003; Paestum 2004, Torino 2005, Firenze 2007)
  11. 11. Management planIn order to provide a solid help to the sites which are planning to adopt the Management Plan, a law has been published.It is called “Special measures for protection and fruition of theItalian sites of cultural, scenic and environmental sites part of the Unesco World Heritage List (n.77/2006) aiming at: a)encouraging the drafting and the implementation of management plans; b) raise the awareness of Unesco World Heritage sites, especially within schools; c) qualify parking areas and mobility systems; d) strengthen cultural services and reception facilities for the public
  12. 12. Management plan Among the sites registered in the list after 2002, therefore having a management plan, we find: • Syracuse and the Rocky Necropolis of Pantalica;• Genoa: Le Strade Nuove and the system of the Palazzi dei Rolli Among previously registered sites that produced a management plan we find: • Rock Drawings in Valcamonica • Archaeological Area of Agrigento Published on the website
  13. 13. Modena Cathedral, Torre Civica and Piazza Grande“The joint creation of Lanfranco and Wiligelmo is a (1997) masterpiece of human creative genius in which a new dialectical relationship between architecture and sculpture was created in Romanesque art. The Modena complex bears exceptional witness to the cultural traditions of the 12th century and is one of the best examples of an architectural complex where religious and civic values are combined in a medieval Christian town.”
  14. 14. Criteria I. Modena Cathedral, with its extraordinary sculptural set, is a witness of human genius of creation; II. At the beginning of the XII Century, Modena was one of the main places where a new figurative language, destined to affect all of local Romanesque art, was being created. In a European context, Modena Cathedral represents a special testimony within the rebirth of stone monumental sculpture; III. Its construction is one of the most important proofs of the urban society existing in Northern Italy in the XII and XIII centuries;IV. The monumental set offers an example of urban development in a tight connection with civic values, particularly through the relationships between economy, religion, as well as the socio-political life of the city it highlights.
