paintings;   sculptures;  architectural monuments and urban structure;  archaeological findings;  musical instruments;

fashion and habits;  utensils and artifacts;  natural and urban landscape

*  Intangible goods shall mean all those not bearing a stable, defined shape, but only exist when they take place, such as:
