The exhibition’s distinctive features consists in operating on two quite inseparable and complementary levels: purposely didactic and deeply engaging, in order to alert the public to the reality and the fragility of the World Heritage sites. It is as much about providing simple clues to knowing and understanding the Word Heritage and the sites displayed in terms of setup and history as it is about compelling emotion. It is an opportunity to immerse oneself deeply into the spectacular beauty of these remote places – serene, timeless and yet partly destroyed by recent history.
