New sites looking for an acknowledgement
After the Dolomites and the pile dwellings, Trentino has proposed several other locations to be added to the Unesco World Heritage List
Rich in natural and cultural heritage, Trentino is sponsoring various projects to include other locations in the list of world heritage sites: Lake Garda, shared with Veneto and Lombardy, the Sanctuary of San Romedio in Val di Non and the Pyramids of Segonzano in Val di Cembra.
Appetite comes with eating. And so, after the recognition of the Dolomites, the Ledro and Fiavé pile dwellings, the Alpi Ledrensi e Judicaria biosphere, other places in Trentino are now interested in having their name included in the list of World Heritage Sites or in receiving other important international acknowledgements. So that Lake Garda, the largest Italian lake, after similar proposals by Veneto and Lombardy, has now an official proposal by Trentino, which could aim for the "mixed" heritage list, because of the significant environmental and cultural heritage of this area.
An environmental asset aiming for a spot on the UNESCO list are the pyramids of Segonzano in Valle di Cembra. The pyramids are a very distinctive geological formation, to be found in other alpine resorts, too. A "symbol" of the Alps in the field of culture is the Sanctuary of San Romedio in Val di Non, for which the province has expressed interest in a UNESCO World Heritage List candidature. Seemingly set for receiving the mark of European Heritage by the European Commission, instead, is the network of Austro-Hungarian fortifications of the Great War in Trentino.
