The continuing adventure of our cultural heritage

The eagerly anticipated bill passed by the Ministry of Culture, disappointed all those who expected the creation of a “Joint Body for the Protection of our Cultural Heritage” which would implement and make more room for regulations drawn up on occasions concerning city planning or the environment. The bill’s incomplete quality is made obvious in the manning of the Governing Board. The man in charge of the Directorate of Modern Monuments was absent, as was an architect member of the board. The only actual prerequisite for the Director, is for him to have a vague knowledge of “Management” and a University degree in any subject. The vagueness of “financial” regulations is considered just as dangerous as the removal of private capital from the conservation game.
