Towards Unesco Recognition

Today, when extreme weather, abandonment and neglect put at risk ecosystems’ actual ability to continue producing services, landscape is the issue that UNESCO is dealing with most prominently: landscape not in the sense of a panorama or a pretty postcard, but rather as the population’s capacity for crystallizing, managing and making evolve the area in which it lives, creating wellbeing and a common identity. The innovative element in the candidacy of the hills of Conegliano Valdobbiadene is in interpreting the landscape as a living heritage of the community.

In 2008 a project was launched for the hills of Conegliano Valdobbiadene to be recognised as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Ours is in fact a real cultural landscape, in which the labours of the vine-growers have contributed towards creating scenery that is absolutely unique.
