Comparative analysis (including state of conservation of similar properties)

The Dolomites are the archetype of specific scenery which is universally used to
define landscapes with similar features. In fact, the term “dolomitic landscape”
has been used to define mountains , that are characterized by similar features
from aesthetic, landscape, geologic, and geomorphologic point of view but which
are seldom comparable to the archetype.
