During my search for Italien former TWHS, I found a few more nominations. Or nominations, that may be redundant?
Can you tell me, which ones might have been forgotten, or whether they are included in a different nomination?
Casina Vanvitelliana-1984
Cortona - Piero della Francesca -1984
Piazza Armerina on Sicily??
Turin city, (only the Savoyen residencies are part now)

Archeological Site of Segesta
Sacra di San Michele- is part of 2016 nomination Cultural Landscape of Benedectine...
Bologna (only the Porticos are included now?)
Rock cities of Puglia -1996
Portus Romae
Monte Sant'Angelo and the Via Sacra Langobardorum

Spoleto and Tempietto sul Clitunno are both Langobard sites, why are they listed as a seperate nomination?

I do not have the exact sources anymore, but i worked myself through the old Tentative lists of every country, so they should be official TWHS sites?

Hi Jakub, let's go through your entries once again:


Casina Vanvitelliana (1984): It isn't on the list. There is the Vanvitellian Aqueduct which is a part of the Caserta WHS.

Cortona - Piero della Franchesca (1984): We have it.

Piazza Armerina : This is WHS Villa del Causale. It is included in the T-list as an example of restoration.

Turin: Only "il dimore sabaude" is meant, which is the Savoy monuments. Probably identical with the inscribed monuments within Turin, although the later Savoy WHS includes sites outside Turin as well.

Segesta: We already have this one.

Sacra di San Michele: Needs an update.

Bologna: The porticoes are all over the historic centre, therefore we assumed that the same area was meant.

Rock cities of Puglia: I could only find some erased lines in the 1996 TWHS document relating to Puglia and including Altamura (now a separate TWHS). I guess this could be it, but would you have a source?

Portus Romae: Identical with former TWHS Ostia.

Monte Sant'Angelo and Via Sacra Langobardorum: Included in the Longobards WHS.

Spoleto and Tempietto sul Clitunno: In both cases (as well as Cividale di Friuli) the entire historical centre was meant to be nominated. Eventually only the Longobard components have been nominated.

I found another one we missed:

Santuario rupestre di Olevano sul Tusciano (1996)


Dolmen de Valencia de Alcantara (2012): I have no access to the 2012 T-list. Could you provide a source?

Cathedral de la Merced, Huelva (1985): I couldn't find it in the 1995 document. Could you provide a source?

Gaudi extension (2005): Needs to be updated.

Casina Vanvitelliana (1984): It isn't on the list. There is the Vanvitellian Aqueduct which is a part of the Caserta WHS.

Seems to be a completely separate thing, the Casina Vanvitelliana is some sort of lodge in the middle of a lake.

Piazza Armerina : This is WHS Villa del Causale. It is included in the T-list as an example of restoration.

Was the town was viewed as an extension of the Roman Villa 3km away? Seems odd to me or have I misunderstood that.
Cortona - Piero della Franchesca (1984): We have it. Giotto e il Beato Angelico - Assisi e Cortona

Interesting I guess Italy first viewed the world heritage list as a repository for art as well, before there was clarification on movable sites. But that proposal seems to only be for the works of Giotto and Fra Angelico, but the proposal Jakob unearthed is for the works of Piero della Francesca, so perhaps it is related to this one (Piero della Francesca - Siena, Firenze, Borgo San Sepolcro) instead.

Re: Casina Vanvitelliana
I am not saying it is a part of Caserta. It's just not on the list. I think Jakob mistook it for the Vanvitellian Aqueduct, which is a part of Caserta.

Re: Piazza Armerina

No, the town is definitely not included. Just the Roman Villa del Causale which belongs to Piazza Armerina.

Re: Pierro della Francesca
The Italian TWHS listing is very ambiguous. Translated it goes:
Giotto and Fra Angelico - Assisi and Cortona - Della Francesca, Siena - Florence - Borgo San Sepolcro
The ways I understand it it includes two separate nominations: One for Giotto and Fra Angelico (Assisi and Cortona) and one for Della Francesca (Florence, Siena and San Sepolcro). Since Cortona includes works by both Della Francesca and Fra Angelico, it is impossible to do better than take a guess.

Additionally' Saudi Arabia submitted a 7 pages list of cultural sites back in 1988. I guess these were tentative sites, the longest we have seen.

Several sites we have missed:

It is good that you have gone through the documents you have found and listed the additional T List sites but it would also be helpful for future reference to have links to the documents in which all these sites (excluding Saudi!) were listed. Back in Jan 15 a list of documents presented at WHCs listing T List sites added for each year was collected here - 10066
That contained links to the documents for e.g 1987 - which did NOT include e.g Togo. Now it appears that there must have been an other document for 1987 containing T List additions for Togo etc. The same appears to be true for other years between 1981-7.

I notice by the way that "Tata Tamberma (Togo) 1987" is actually what became Koutoumakkou.- so the "History" of that site should be changed to show its original T List appearance under the different name

So these documents all come from BUREAU papers for each of the years - whereas the links we had previuosly used pointed at WHC papers.

Some of the ones we have missed were in both -e.g the Yugoslavia list for 1986 presented to the WHC does contain e.g Pelister NP
the list presented to the BUREAU in 1987 was different from that presented to the WHC later that year -the latter doesn't contain proposals by a range of West African states INCLUDING B Faso , Cameroon, Gabon Togo etc etc - which explains why we had missed all their T Lists!!! From what I can make out it appears that the WHC papers are incomplete - they stop at a page headed "Atelier UNESCO-ICOMOS" held in Bamako on 26th -30th Jan 1987. This meeting presumably put together the various T Lists - the only problem was that someone failed to photocopy them for the WHC or else failed to put them on the UNESCO Web site as PDFs!!!

I haven't yet followed up how the T List entries for other years got missed - but it does seem that we should take the BUREAU papers as being correct - whatever those for the WHC say!
