Abstract (in English)

The paper argues that, as monuments and sites evolve in response to specifics of place and time, it is essential, in caring for them, to respect the natural and cultural values of their settings. To pursue that argument, the paper identifies three distinct, significant places, which share a single setting. It describes recent innovative programs to consolidate both their individual outstanding qualities and their links to setting, in a context of dynamic change.
