1b. Answer

The places that are world heritage sites have an inspiration behind them or have a meaning whether it be a negative or positive meaning. The world heritage sites that I focused on were Piazza del Duomo in Pisa and here are the four masterpieces of medieval architecture. They are the cathedral, the baptistry, the campanile (leaning tower), and the cemetery. All these pieces influenced or inspired monumental art in Italy. The second place is the city of Florence and the city was build on a settlement called Etruscan. These was the symbol of renaissance rose to economic and cultural dominance under Medici in 15th and 16th century.
