Towards the approval of the Buffer Zone of the World Heritage Property of Rome

The proposal to establish a Buffer Zone, as an active protection tool for the World Heritage property of Rome, seeks to collect the new threats faced by historic centres, as outlined in the UNESCO Recommendation on the Historic Urban Landscape (2011).

As the humanity’s future depends on effective resource planning and management, conservation has become a strategy for achieving a sustainable balance between urban growth and quality of life

The proposal was submitted in January 2020, passed the first technical evaluation of the WH Commitee, and is awaiting final approval.
