Give me the possibility to be more detailed. The post indicates a situation like that of Italy. In Italy the list of monuments is fragmented and the minister of the cultural heritage has an old lists or has no list in some regions.
In this case Sweden is building the list: the aim is perfect with that of Wikipedia because people contributes to list the cultural heritage. In Switzerland the list of monuments is present, is complete and there is the opposite problem there are several lists and also the smaller objects are scheduled and described. When I was in the Office of the cultural heritage of Canton Ticino, I was astonished by the detail of this database and only a partial list of monuments and objects are public or because they are not protected by an official document of the municipalities or because some details are secret for security reason. Honestly I proposed them at least to work with the community to document these objects with photos... but it will be a different stuff.
