Did you know that Italy has the most UNESCO World Heritage Sites of any other country? Yes, Italy has more than 5% of the World Heritage list, that is more than any other country and represents a mark of the cultural and geographic richness of this nation. 

Heritage is our legacy from the past, what we live with today, and what we pass on to future generations. Our cultural and natural heritage are both irreplaceable sources of life and inspiration. What makes the concept of World Heritage exceptional is its universal application. World Heritage sites belong to all the peoples of the world, irrespective of the territory on which they are located.
