Imovable Material Heritage
Intangible Cultural Heritage
Tangible Cultural Heritage
Cultural heritage is a set of cultural assets that are very present in the group's history, which have been passed down between several generations.
It is the visible face of the collective, singular and specific memory of each country, region or place that deserves to be preserved and appropriated by the community.
The movable cultural heritage is the one that can be transported from one place to another, such as documents, books, works of art, archaeological pieces, furniture, religious objects, clothing.
The immovable cultural heritage is constituted by those assets which cannot be moved, due to impossibility or because their original meaning may be altered.
The immovable cultural heritage includes those properties which are relevant to the understanding, permanence and construction of national identity and the democratisation of culture.
Old Town of Corfu
The Old Town of Corfu, on the Island of Corfu off the western coasts of Albania and Greece, is located in a strategic position at the entrance of the Adriatic Sea, and has its roots in the 8th century BC.
The three forts of the town were used for four centuries to defend the maritime trading interests of the Republic of Venice against the Ottoman Empire.
The mainly neoclassical housing stock of the Old Town is partly from the Venetian period, partly of later construction, notably the 19th century. As a fortified Mediterranean port, Corfu’s urban and port ensemble is notable for its high level of integrity and authenticity.
Historic Centre of Florence
Built on the site of an Etruscan settlement, Florence, the symbol of the Renaissance, rose to economic and cultural pre-eminence under the Medici in the 15th and 16th centuries.
Its 600 years of extraordinary artistic activity can be seen above all in the 13th-century cathedral (Santa Maria del Fiore), the Church of Santa Croce, the Uffizi and the Pitti Palace, the work of great masters such as Giotto, Brunelleschi, Botticelli and Michelangelo.
The Monastery of the Dominicans of Batalha was built to commemorate the victory of the Portuguese over the Castilians at the battle of Aljubarrota in 1385. It was to be the Portuguese monarchy's main building project for the next two centuries.
Here a highly original, national Gothic style evolved, profoundly influenced by Manueline art, as demonstrated by its masterpiece, the Royal Cloister.
