She UNESCO World Heritage Committee The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) inscribed the frescoes of the Italian city of Padua (Padova) on the World Heritage List during its international conference in Fuzhou (China). The frescoes can be found in eight religious and civic buildings in the historic walled city. They were painted between 1302 and 1397 by different artists for different clients.
Claudio Cibula, Bishop of Padua, saluting recognition of the frescoed cycles: This means an important recognition in the artistic and tourist field, but also in the field of faith.
The most famous of these is the Mural Paintings Course for Painter and Architect Giotto de Bondoni In the Scroveny Chapel In Padova (known as the Arena Chapel). This cycle (1303-1305) is considered the beginning of a revolution in the history of murals. The other courses are the works of Guariento di Arpo, Giusto de ‘Menabuoi, Altichiero da Zevio, Jacopo Avanzi and Jacopo da Verona.
The Diocese of Padua owns the baptistery of the cathedral with the frescoes by Justo de Menaboy (1330-1390) and the Church of Hermes. Bishop Sibula hopes that this honor will encourage future visitors to appreciate the value of these sites as a testimony of faith.
