Decision 21 COM VIII.C
Inscription: The Archaeological Areas of Pompei, Herculanum and Torre Annunziata (Italy)

The Archaeological Areas of Pompei, Herculanum and Torre Annunziata

829

Italy

C(iii)(iv)(v)

The Committee decided to inscribe this property on the basis of criteria (iii), (iv) and (v), considering that the impressive remains of the towns of Pompei and Herculaneum and their associated villas, buried by the eruption of Vesuvius in AD 79, provide a complete and vivid picture of society and daily life at a specific moment in the past that is without parallel anywhere in the world.

The Committee asked Italy to submit a progress report in time for the Bureau meeting in June 1998, on the management measures taken at Pompei, with particular reference to experience gained through planned partnerships between the State and private enterprises, as well as information concerning the protection of the environment surrounding the area.
