Do we need a category for wetlands?
Good question, as they seem quite common. Until now, we have them mostly under Rivers and lakes. We could change that name to "Rivers, wetlands and lakes". I don't know whether there are "wetland only" WHS.
There surely at least are where the wetland aspect is the most important one! The first that comes to my mind, nomen omen, is the Pantanal in Paraguay. Also the Ahwar of southern Iraq. But just in these T-lists we see many attempts to promote marshlands and the like, there are many others. I think that it could easily warrant a category for itself, but also starting from the extension of an ezisting one might be OK.
Astraftis: ecco l'Italia!
It looks like Italy has changed most names of the TWHS from the Italian name to an English one. We still have the Italian ones, need to fix that.
Then sometimes they're not capable of giving a decent English equivalent like Lake D'Orta
, which should be just Orta Lake
, like Como lake...
Via Francigena in Italy - Continuing; Medieval Europe - Again, this is rather intangible
I'd go for Christian, that's what we have for the Compostela routes as well. Francigena in the proposed OUV is described solely as a pilgrimage route.
But this Christian part is totally abstract, and the core zones are simply the historical city centers along the way... the Francigena looks just like an excuse to string them together, the Christian aspect is not particularly highlighted, rather than it bein a "transalpine highway of the Middle-Ages", that's why I chose that category!
The Murge of Altamura - Karst landscapes and caves; Non-hominid fossils - Fossils of every kind! "murge" is plural of "murgia" (a dialectal word for rocky places of some kind)
The UNESCO website has this as a cultural nomination, we have it as mixed. The text feels like natural, with the attributed categories that you have given plus Human evolution (both human and non-human fossils have been found).
Pfff - The Italian TWHS are very tricky, the texts seem to ramble on, adding a Roman ruin here and there
Well, it's difficult not
to find a Roman ruin anywhere! :-D Just added value, I say. :-P These proposals are also not that developed, they look like ideas in their draft stage. Anyway, I notice a general tendency for very diffuse proposals with many mixed aspects. Now I'm going on and see how common this is...
So, I'm taking:AlbaniaCroatiaGreeceLibyaMontenegroSloveniaTunisia
Unfortunately, neither the Vatican nor San Marino have any T-list!
