Natural beauty and aesthetic importance

The description of the natural beauty of the property is divided into three parts. The first consists of analyses of the structure of the Dolomite landscape, split up into landscape units to show the more common, recognisable elementary structures, the minimum common denominators, of all the nominated region. The second examines the overall view of the Dolomite landscape and deals principally with scenic values. The third analyses the aesthetic importance of the Dolomites, also from the historic point of view in that it describes how these mountains have struck the imagination
of whoever has studied, visited, or merely travelled across them.
