Built heritage is a renewable resource. We strongly believe that its in a critical serious nowadays moving quickly towards destruction.
Protected built areas are constantly attacked through the demolition or mutilation of valuable buildings, as well as by new constructions, foreign to the local specificity.
Preserving and valuing heritage is a “long-term investment” which – as international experience has shown – is largely involved in a country’s development.
This letter was signed by 170 personalities, institutions and organizations.
We invite you to join us in signing the Petition to Save Our Heritage.
