The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization was established in London on November 16, 1945, and has been operating since 1946.
The UNESCO headquarters is in Paris, the Member States are 190 (October 2003).
The great potential of cultural heritage as a generator of wealth is an acquired fact, even if not everyone is fully aware of it. We are, according to many, the most beautiful country in the world, certainly the one with the largest number of sites registered in the UNESCO list.
Their management must be in compliance with the
Convention for the protection of the world heritage, adopted by UNESCO in 1972, and thus maintain the canons that have allowed them to access the status of exceptional world heritage assets recognized by UNESCO.
As a specialized organization of the UN, UNESCO was born from the common purpose of contributing to the maintenance of peace, respect for human rights and the equality of peoples through the channels of Education, Science, Culture and Communication.
The Organization’s objective was defined as “contributing to peace and security by promoting collaboration among nations through education, science and culture to ensure universal respect for justice, law and human rights. and of the fundamental freedoms that the Charter of the United Nations recognizes to all peoples, without distinction of race, sex, language or religion. ”
The historical, artistic and natural capital possessed by Italy is enormous and this is tantamount to saying that there is much to do and that this legacy constitutes for us as well as an honor, a burden.
Precisely for this reason we would like to introduce you to the UNESCO SITES of Puglia, to give the right value and relevance to our recognized artistic and artistic heritage, which is the banner of Apulian culture throughout the world.
