Abstract (in English)

ICOMOS was established in 1965, but the idea of creating an international organization to care for the world’s monuments was first put into practice some 30 years before. It was called the International Committee on Historic Monuments (CIMH) and was set up in 1933 by the International Museums Office, which was an autonomous service within the League of Nations. The CIMH was created in order to fulfill the missions entrusted to the International Museums Office by the 1931 Athens Conference, missions which are written on the famous «Athens Charter on the Restoration of Monuments».
