Changed it!

But it was still "deferred"- just not with that title.

Quite a bit of new information about Italy's coming nomination of Scrovegni Chapel. I think its a sure thing for either 2019 or 2020, its a bit unclear to me if the dossier is being submitted this January.

Padua, Scrovegni Chapel new candidacy site Unesco

The Chapel of the Scrovegni in Padua is dressed in a new light

Does this indicate Italy's 2019 cultural nomination? Is this the Salento and the "Barocco Leccese" nomination? 77

Taking the Italian TWHS discussion to where it belongs.

Maddalena Island
Giardini Botanici Hambury
Island of Asinara
Lake Maggiore and Lake D'Orta
Sila NP
Pelagos: The Cetacean Sanctuary
The Aniene valley and Villa Gregoriana in Tivoli
The Marble Basin of Carrara (I met the guy who drove around with the stunt guy from the Jamese Bond movie...what a connection indeed!)
The Prosecco Hills of Conegliano and Valdobbiadene (actually the mountains nearby are worth a look instead in summer)
Via Appia "Regina Viarum" (probably impossible to miss if you go to the tombs in Rome anyway)

If normal standards applied to Italy they should just go for the full country inscription and be done with it. There are so many historic and nice places. My personal favorite is Bobbio. But to me Italian sites have to be better.

In your list I find several sites where I would disagree:
* Prosecco Hills are a joke, especially when comparing them to the Champagne.
* Neither Bologna nor Pavia entice me much.
* Bergamo is effectively inscribed via the Venetian works of Defense.
* Clydes review of Parma is fairly lackluster. Having travelled in the area frequently, it's not that recommeded.

Places I enjoyed:
* Lago d'Orta and Maggiore.

Places I would be keen to visit:
* Lucca
