WORLD TREASURES AND THE F.W.T. NETWORK
"Amici dei Tesori del Mondo" ("Friends of World Treasures") is sponsored by the International Federation of UNESCO's Clubs and Associations and by the United Nations for Education, Science and Culture Organization (UNESCO). At the occasion of the Cultural Development Decade, in 1988, ATM set a network of institutions, associations, groups committed to the cultural and natural heritage, which in a consolidated way and for a long time, have been supporting Cultural Heritage. Therefore, the close link between a wide social group, committed for a long time, and Cultural Heritage registered in the prestigious "Friends of World Treasures" list, conforms the "Treasure" itself . This concept plays a role of a cultural proposal. Up to now, there are only 7 "World Treasures" all over Europe. Obtaining a particular UNESCO card will support economically every single Treasure.
