Prior to The World Heritage Convention, this territory is conceived as a protection zone around the particular monument or the group of monuments protected. Even though the protection is still focussed on the monument, the recurring intention to define the zone of protection gradually leads to a shift from the traditional object-oriented monument conservation to a territory-based heritage protection, which demands the establishment of the necessary conditions and vocabulary for the delimitation of the protected territories.
Its first basic principle is that “urban historical sites may be considered as those spaces where manifold evidences of the city’s cultural production concentrate. ”149 In this way, the urban historical sites are meant to weld together not only the built and natural environment but also the everyday experience of its dwellers. This definition of The Itaipava Principles would permit the interpretation of the totality of the urban territory as heritage, but it does not yet provide an appropriate term for this approach because its notion of “historical site” not only belongs 40 G.
As we have seen, however, it is only the earliest, The Xi’an Declaration on the Preservation of the Setting 44 G. ”166 The Paris Declaration on heritage as a driver of development (2011b) uses the notion of “multifunctional, landscaped urban neighbourhood,”167 but its relationship to HUL is unclear because of the lack of appropriate definition. Though the landscape and the cultural landscape are present in all these standard-setting instruments, HUL is not mentioned even in The Valletta Principles for the Safeguarding and Management of Historic Cities, Towns, Urban Areas (2011c),168 which were conceived for a very similar purpose to that of the UNESCO Recommendation on the HUL in the same year.
