I know the Italian team is a bit confused, I don't know what we know. 
Thanks for the patience. For sure I don't understand the instructions, 

AFAICS, User:Yiyi has specified a category for most monuments in the 
latest Wikipedia lists, e.g.

Of course that's fine if it can help solve issues in the short term.

That may be sad, but hardly weird. I wonder if you remember that lists 
of monuments can't be in main namespace on the Italian Wikipedia, so no 
automatic usage is possible.

Probably. :)

Why is it strange? AFAICS all the others have a template to generate 
rows of monument lists tables. The current one is 
https://it.wikipedia.org/wiki/Template:WLM2015-riga . We use new 
templates and new lists every year because the authorised monuments vary 
every year.
