"The Intergovernmental Committee of the Unesco Convention 2003 has inscribed the 'Celebration of Celestinian forgiveness' in the representative list of the intangible cultural heritage of humanity on the proposal of Italy": this is what we read on the Unesco certificate delivered to the L'Aquila community in front of the Basilica of Santa Maria di Collemaggio, before the lighting of the tripod of peace, a moment that marks the official start of the Celestinian Forgiveness, now in its 726 edition.
    And pacification is one of the elements that tacitly emerges among those that have allowed "the community of holders and practitioners" to obtain registration, in December 2019, in the Representative List of the Unesco Convention 2003, "for a festive cycle, from 16 to August 29, which has a secular historical foundation with a cultural and spiritual value ". A praise to the fact that a code of ethical conduct has been adopted to prevent the tourist impact precisely in compliance with ritual and spiritual practice, as reported by the decision of the International Assessment Body. The Feast of Celestinian Forgiveness, in UNESCO recognition, is anything but folklorization and spectacularization and goes far beyond the concept of historical re-enactment. And the 'Fire of Morrone' is an integral part of the 'Festa' with its 'Path of Forgiveness': in the footsteps of Pietro Angelerio future Celestino V, who in 1294 traveled 80 km through 23 villages in the province of L'Aquila from Sulmona to L'Aquila , is one of the moments that best makes the sense of community and belonging.
    The importance of recognition is all in the few but dense words of the certificate that give the entire L'Aquila community a great responsibility: inclusion in this list contributes, in general, "to ensuring a better visibility of the intangible cultural heritage, to become aware of its importance and encourage dialogue in respect of cultural diversity "as explained to ANSA by Elena Sinibaldi, national 'focal point' for the implementation and implementation of the 2003 Unesco Convention (Unesco Service-General Secretariat-Mibact), which was present at Perdonanza 2019 as coordinator of the preliminary process for the candidacy for UNESCO heritage.
    For Unesco, in fact, "an intangible heritage is not an end in itself, but it is based on its ability to consistently develop good safeguarding practices", which can also be defined beyond the events from 16 to 29 August. This recognition, in fact, is fundamental in maintaining cultural diversity in the face of globalization; understanding it helps intercultural dialogue and encourages mutual respect for different ways of life. "The safeguard plan must include tools that favor social inclusion, intergenerational dialogue, a relationship between communities and institutions, even a multilevel governance" underlines Sinibaldi.
