The World Heritage Centre also received information from NGOs concerning the new Dal Molin military base, which is located 1,5km outside the World Heritage property.
On 31 May 2010 the World Heritage Centre was informed by the Italian authorities that the proposed Dal Molin military base will be situated far outside of the buffer zone of the World Heritage property and that it will not have any negative impact on the property.
The World Heritage Centre and the Advisory Bodies consider that details of the proposed Dal Molin military base need to be assessed for any potential impact on the property.
