Abstract (in English)

The Venice Charter 1964 (and subsequent ICOMOS charters and declarations) recognize the cultural significance of settings and surroundings of monuments and of monuments and sites. However, this recognition is mostly in general terms, without enunciating the wide range of values, associations and meanings that might be present at a specific monument or site.
