Lake Maggiore and Lake D'Orta lakelands
Lake Maggiore and Lake D'Orta lakelands is part of the Tentative list of Italy in order to qualify for inclusion in the World Heritage List.
The Lake Maggiore and Lake D'Orta Lakelands is located in Piemonte, on the eastern side of the Pre-Alpine lake district. Since the 16th century, the landscape has been extensively remodelled, with the construction of villa-palazzos and formal gardens. Concepts such as "landscape museum" and "landscape poetry" found inspirations in these lakelands, testifying to a particularly harmonious man-landscape relationship.
